I've been hearing good things about this - has anyone got any opinions or experience please?

I'd love to hear!

Thank you

I'd be interested in hearing this.

I am just starting my research but note with a little suprise that they are asking for 70% on every paper at CE - the only others who ask this that I know of are Westminster (and probably St Pauls) so they are clearly expecting a very high academic level.

What do you want to know? I think it's quite a self-evident sort of school, if you see what I mean, academic, quite straight, no frills, very urban, wide geographic range as it's accessible from lots of residential areas, high state school intake (which is good, I think, I liked that it didn't have a prep attached), recent new head. The whole admissions process felt quite impersonal, which is not in itself a bad thing.

Ds isn't there, by the way, but we did the 11+.

That's the sort of thing, coffee ! I like all that, tbh, so v encouraging.

Am booked on open day but was interested to hear opinions.

Where did your DS go in the end?

Michaelahpurple that's quite a stat!

Thank you

I know boys there who've loved it and thrived socially and academically - I'm a huge fan
