Hi,

I'm about to start a PGCE in Primary teaching in September and am debating whether to get a car to get to and from uni as I live two bus rides away. Only thing is, the uni only lets disabled students park on campus, does anyone know how easy it is to park for free in the surrounding area? I don't mind walking for a bit either.

Thanks!

Hey!

I'm starting a PGCE in Sept at Roehampton too and need to know the same info! I'm living in Ealing so it's 23 mins drive or a 2 hour walk, bus, then train then another bus then another walk. They seem really strict on their website about parking.

Let me know if you find anything!!

Thats a coincidence, I've just moved from Ealing to Sutton a few months ago, I really miss it!

I know what you mean, they are so strict and although I can get two buses there, driving would make my life a lot easier, especially when it comes to teaching practice weeks.

If you have no luck then the only other suggestion I have is the 65 into Kingston then the 85 (I think) to Roehampton, still it depends if you live on the 65 route I guess.

What is your specialism going to be?

I'm from Ealing as well - on the broadway to be precise, a bit further down from Hanwell tucked in behind Sainsburys (to be even more precise :p:)

Anyways, I've been weighing up my travel options. Travelling all the way by bus is out of the question. Its either by car or rail - have no idea what lines or stations serve the area at all

Hi phoenix,

what a small world, I used to live just by South Ealing station and still visit quite a lot to see my old house mates.

Are you KS1 or 2?

I wouldn't mind so much getting the buses in the summer but waiting around in winter with books and bags doesn't appeal to me, not to mention when teaching practice starts.

Closest rail station to Roehampton is Barnes, which is on the main line into Waterloo. You can get off there and walk (it's about ten-fifteen mins), or there's a couple of buses that go past the station and the uni. Off the top of my head I think they're the 72 and the 265.

You can also get a train/tube to Hammersmith and then bus it to Roehampton, you'd get the 72 bus in Hammersmith and it's about a 20-25 minute journey. Or you can get a train to Clapham Junction and then catch a bus - I can't for the life of me remember which bus it is now but it used to go from Danebury Avenue (near Whitelands, rather than the main campus) and up through Wandsworth to Clapham.

The three options are bus to Brentford, Train from Brentford station to Barnes then 23 min walk or bus. (2hours to get there for 8.45 so leave at 6.45am) Or Bus to Ealing Broadway and tube to Hammersmith then bus (over 2 hours and more expensive) Or drive (which is what I am thinking but the traffics gunna be rubbish. Mission! Thought we were so close!

Hi Maxine, It's not too bad... is it for PGCE? Just look online for Government legislation and research some current educational buzz words and issues. Looking at times online or their educational supplement really helped me (if you can b4 ur interview.) Just smile and dont panic. Its not group interview like some other interviews so pretty easy to say what you want in your own time. Good luck!!

I agree, I think that looking up the TES really helped me. And smile, be friendly and mention how organised you are-they love that! Overall though, they all seemed nice and it is fairly relaxed for an interview. You might also need to do some tests (basic grammar and spelling mistakes in a Harry Potter passage was mine) so be aware of that.

Is it?? I've been living round here for roughly a year and half now. We must've bumped into each other at least once without knowing : p
