I am looking to move DC to an Independent School in the North London/Hertfordshire area.

I am worried about the entrance exams.

DD is bright but was not successful at St Albans (Wheathamstead House) entrance exam for Year 2. She is now in a good state school in Year 4.

DS (Reception) is definitely a little slower than expected for his age and I am concerned that he will not be able to pass the entrance assessments.

I do not want put them through assessments at many different schools. I think with the right support and in the right environment, they can both go on to do really well.

Any advice at what good Independent Schools I should be looking at?

Preferably co-educational.

I want them both to be in an environment where they can make good progress, achieve their potential and continue to develop their love for sports.

Thank you

Why don't you just wait for DD and have a look at Queenswood for age 11. Selective but not hugely. Very sporty. This is a popular choice for people living in N. London/Herts. You avoid the exams for the prep and there would only be one exam at age 11. It is perfectly possible to get into Queenswood from a state school. Then you can concentrate on your DS. Not sure about boys and co-ed I'm afraid other than Haileybury.

You are spolied for choice there is Heathmount, St Edmunds, Sherradswood, St Josephs in the Park none of which are overly selective and all co-ed.
