MaryMargaret I would agree with your comments about the school in Cinderford. One of my relatives went there (she is also dyslexic) and did really well. She was very well supported and has gone on to do well since leaving. I have to agree as well that Cinderford is not an "expensive" town but the area around is lovely. And we have a good rugby team (my home team - even though I now live miles away). I must be due a visit home soon to watch a match (when the snow clears). If you consider it, then look at some of the houses on the outskirts - my parents have a fantastic view over the Forest.
