SIR, - Our daughter has been assigned a school three buses and 1.5-hours travel away. We ranked our two nearest schools on our application plus a single-sex school a little further away. Herts County Council will now have to pay for taxis to get her to school under their own guidelines - perhaps £10,000 over the secondary school period.

We are appealing and on continued interest of course, but have had no feedback on chances of success from the admissions authority to date.

PAUL SHEEHAN,

Brownfield Way, Gustard Wood.
