Hi I am new to this, so sorry please bear with me. Am trying to make choices for son's secondary education. He has passed the 11 plus, and want to apply to maidstone grammar, however we live the other side of headcorn. Does anyone know if a school bus will take him there. Don't want to apply and get a place and not be able to get him there. There is a more local grammar but it is not as good.
Hi I'm also in Kent and have a ds at a grammar and one at a comp. Is the Maidstone grammar your nearest secondary school? Not nearest selective, just closest school?. If it is you are eligible for free travel. If it is not your nearest school you won't get free travel... However.... For £100 a year you can buy a Kent freedom pass and use this towards the cost of travel to your selective school. So in my sons case, the grammar he's at is not our nearest school, he travels on a dedicated coach to school. It cost us the freedom pass and about £75 a term. This will change again at 6th form and will be about £500 Find out who runs the transport and speak to them for more info
