Hi All. I am new to mumsnet. Does anyone know how safe bus 242 from cheshunt to dame alice Owens is? Or if there is a private arrangement from Cheshunt (prime place en8 9ly). Also wanted to check if anyone has kids going from Borehamwood? My daughter just got admission into the school and I am confused about where to buy a house. There are only two choices here. Borehamwood or Cheshunt (En8 9ly)
Hello DAOmum. I personally know pleanty of children take the 242 bus to DAO. However, it is from Cuffley. So far I have yet to hear anything bad at all. I would happily send my child on that bus if they were attending the school. I see the bus several times a day and it has a mixture of school children and the elderly.
To add: I am very familiar with the area of Cheshunt you have given. There is a lot of investment going on there with the new houses and flats, plus the rebuilding of the local secondary. Although I don’t live there- the area seems ok and very close to Goffs Oak which is a very nice area. I know nothing about Borehamwood, but I have driven through a good few times. If I had a choice; I’d chose Cheshunt only because I know the area very welll and your dd would have a straight forward journey. Well done to your dd securing a place at a Brilliant school.
Borehamwood has definitely improved but it’s not a great place to live by choice. The local secondary school has a lot of issues. There won’t be many who go to DAO but those that do may end up on the 626 from Barnet as there’s no direct bus.
