We are moving from London to Birmingham. My son is in Year 8 at the moment he is a higher ability child. I am really confused and concerned about his admission in a good secondary. Never been to Birmingham before therefore Ofsted reports and compare school website are the only options in choosing a school. We are moving to B13 area and the schools I can conclude after weeks' research : Queensbridge school, Bishop Challoner school and Wheelers Lane technology college. We have submitted his name for King Edward camp hill school too but they have a long waiting list for In-Year admission. Please share your experiences about these schools. Which one do you think is the best?
