Am considering moving my DD to Y5 private school. Has anyone got any advice/experience about this transition? Also wanted to find out your thoughts on St. Piran's, Highfield (both in Maidenhead) and Herries (in Cookham).

Thank you

katy72 it is not an easy job to find a private school close to Marlow for a boy!

I liked Herries a lot when I visited but I didn't choose it (also have a DS) because I just don't think it's big enough for sports teams etc.

I considered Ridgeway for KS1 then Caldicott for KS2. Ridgeway has a lovely 'boy-centric' feel about the KS1 department and seemed to have good arrangements in place for supporting reading etc.

You could also perhaps consider Davenies although I have never actually visited.
