Does anyone make the journey from Chalford Hill (or anywhere relatively nearby) to Crypt? Having looked at the school bus routes there seems to be nothing and public buses would involve a 2-bus, very long journey.
Alternatively, does anyone know of any carpools.shared taxis, etc.?
Any guidance would be very welcome!

Not helpful at this stage, I know, but is it too late to apply to Marling...? It would seem to allow about an extra hour and a half in bed in the morning.

Yes, that would be easier... but co-ed is a red line.

Then it might have to not be a grammar?

May be worth contacting John Dix (tracey@johndixtravel.co.uk) to see if he would extend his Quedgeley 1 bus route as it picks up in Frampton 07.45. We receive emails from Crypt asking parents if there would be any interest in bus routes extending.

There are quite a few Crypt/Ribston kids that take the #63 from Stroud, and it's not too long a journey, so maybe another option would be to car share just down to Merrywalks?

Thanks @cazien - I will get in touch with John.

@authormum. A drive to Stroud every morning would be just about acceptable. My geography of Gloucester is quite poor. Where would Crypt/Ribston kids get off the bus and roughly how long is the walk to Crypt?

There is a bunch of Ribston and Crypt children that get the 63..if you pick it up from merry walks or even somewhere along to Whiteshill is not a long journey.. Mine go to Ribston but the Crypt kids get off at St Barnabus roundabout on the far side so no big roads to tackle.. and i guess its a 10 min walk to school..the 63 is a public bus and runs every half an hour, which has been great for after school stuff ..stage coach do an app which tells you live info when the bus is due...

Interesting. Is co-ed a red line for you or DC? I went to a very selective all girls school in London. There were pros/cons of single sex education, but by far the biggest social issue was the fact that most of my school friends lived a long journey away from me (not whether these friends were male or female). I would have done anything to be able to pop round the corner to see friends like the comp kids did. Marling /SHS would offer a much more local set of friends that Crypt. If it was my child, the short journey would win the day, but as you say, we all have our own red lines :)

Sound good. Looking on the map, it seems you would get off at St Barnabas or Tuffley Avenue - Google maps says it is about 18 minutes walk but I suspect there is a short cut: does anyone know?
