This is my first ever post on Mumsnet so really sorry if I get the etiquette wrong, my query is driven around whether St. Columbas is the right school for eldest DS: I moved him there in year 5, he is now in year 6 to make a easier move for him to senior school however I have become concerned that they don't either push the the boys academically and the pastoral care is more 'marketing speak' than evidenced. They don't seem to know children as individuals beyond the favoured few who are all children of teachers. I wonder if for 11 plus if you want academics it would be better to send my DS to St. Albans boys if I want pastoral care I should go for Beaumont or Verulum and save the 100kplus of school fees as a deposit on a house for him. I work full time in order to beanie to pay the school fees as fell its a school that rewards the'volunteer mum' and those who work the system.
