Looking for a school for DD - ideally nursery/pre-prep and prep on same site to send DD to when she is 3.
On paper Godstowe ticks all the boxes as we want to send her to Wycombe Abbey or similar for senior and we thought decision made.
However, we went to the Godstowe open day earlier and although the prep seemed ok, the early years provision really really didn't have the vibe we wanted. We just really didn't like it. No specific concerns, it just didn't feel either workwise or pastorally the right kind of environment. We weren't blown away by the prep section either - it all just seemed a bit disorganised and like it was resting on its laurels a bit.
We've also been to the Abbey Junior in Reading and we loved the feel of it, but we're really after something that is a prep school geared up to teach common entrance rather than an exam for its own senior school.
So, does anyone have any other suggestions?
We are currently closer to Reading than Bucks but can move as long as we end up somewhere with a reasonable London commute.
