Can you really call a journey of about 3 miles a commute? Well it is the journey I take from home to work so I guess you can! Slightly different to my husband and daughter's commute to London and most definitely quicker. Although the instructions I printed off come from Google, I made the map of my actual route from a website called and before anyone who doesn't know me personally thinks that by me knowing websites like that I am some super fit marathon runner - let me assure you that nothing could be further from the truth! I am however an enthusastic Wednesday Power Walker and I've used this website to work out how far me and my friend Lynda have walked when we try a new route. We always finish by saying 'that must have been at least 8 miles' when in fact it is nearer 3 or 4 when I check it out!
Anyhow, let me now direct you on my route to work ...

The crest on the bottom is the school crest which says 'sic itur ad astra' - Reach for the Stars which is our school motto. (Kind of appropriate that we are a Specialist Science College eh?) It also combines the town crests for Hertfordshire & Essex because ... that's the name of the school!
