thanks. i heard (on the grapevine) that the head (new) caused quite a bit of friction, not sure if primary or senior school, tho. v. worried about two parents saying he has made minimum effort to get to know the children, talks about sports more than anything else etc which was not the case with the old head, who, although eccentric, was apparently much better liked by parents. really don't know what to do.
I am very happy with the school. The head, deputy head and the teachers we have dealt with (currently in primary school) are not only helpful and welcoming but also one of the many reasons we chose this school.
