Hi all

I would like to ask your advise on the school choice please? We received offers form RGS Guildford (13+), KGS (11+, large bursary that is very important for our family) and Trinity (11+, bursary amount to be specified later). My DS is very gifted in singing and music and bright boy, but not especially academic at the moment. What would be your opinion on choosing between these three schools?
To focus my interest, my main concerns regarding schools are: 1) Is RGS rather hothouse exams factory than inspiring environment for various talents? 2) Is KGS rather focused on kids having relaxing happy school life than on ambition and development? 3) Is Trinity rather base for brilliant choir and music facilities than good all-round, including academic, school?
Thank you very much in advance.

They're all miles apart! Go for whichever has the easiest journey...

how can you have 11+ and 13+ offers simultaneously? not for the same child? Trinity is definitely not all about music, many boys are not musical at all. Sports is very big, as are academics, I'd say it's and all round equal split. All boys academic I'd say but music and sports optional, all encouraged.

Thank you for your answers.
If we choose Trinity we move to Croydon.
DS had 11+ exams in T. and KGS and 13+ in RGS. If we decide to go to RGS he stays in his prep for 2 years.
