Hello, does anyone have any advice as to which is the best state primary school in Oakham for my dd who is just about to start juniors? Oakham C of E has amazing facilities and the staff seem really motivated and enthusiastic, but I am worried the performance tables are low. By any chance do you have a child who goes there or Brook Hill or Catmose Primary? I really want to make the right choice as we are relocating to the area and I don't want her to have to change schools again a year down the line. Any advice or info I would be really grateful to receive. Thanks so much. X

Catmose primary guarantees a place at Catmose College which is the only secondary school in town. Used to be sure of getting a place if you lived in town, but since the new building and outstanding ofsted, there have been some children not getting in.

Thanks, we better check that one out also as I was hoping she would be able to go to Catmose Secondary. Any feedback on Oakham C of E? I notice the Headmistress is leaving?

My DS left the school 3 years ago but understand that the Head is just retiring. There really aren't any poor schools in town, we are very lucky.
