Travelling from Coventry
The Journey from Coventry by Dhruvika Talati, Year 13
“You would think that travelling from Coventry would entail a long, arduous journey but in reality, with the help of the minibus service provided by the school, it’s quick and easy. My daily routine is considerably shortened because of the accessibility of the minibus service. After waking up at around 7am, my train is at 8:11am from Coventry Station and it arrives at Rugby by 8:22, where we are picked up by Mr Barnard and arrive at school by 8:40. As you can see, it’s a relatively stress-free process with the train journey itself being very short and it’s the perfect time to catch up with other friends who take the train with you. The friendly atmosphere of the train station also means that it’s easy to ask for help and even take the train on your own if you leave early. Our afternoon train ride is at 4pm so we attempt to get to the minibus as fast as possible so that we can arrive at Coventry Station by 4:10 and usually I arrive home by 4:20. I hope you consider the minibus service provided by the school because it reduces time spent travelling to and from school and most importantly increases your time to relax.”
The current cost of this minibus service is £150/term.
