Hello, wanted to find out if anyone has any views or experience on junior schools in Camberley or Frimley. Thoughts especially on Crawley Ridge Junior school and Ravenscote welcome. Many thanks!

If you're looking for normal round of entry, I don't think there's anywhere you can live that would give you a chance at both. They've both got quite a small catchment area now.

Thanks DeeWe. Yes, normal round - we are moving to the area soon. If you have a child that has been to either do let me know your thoughts. Many thanks!

Basically both reasonable schools.

Crawley Ridge does give priority to those from the infants, but the PAN goes up from 60 to 66, so some get in extra then. Very academically pushy, I think huge amounts of homework. Don't tend to see them around in multischool stuff (eg sports).
Ravenscote, big juniors, with the pros and cons of big schools. Music/sports specialist, lots of ex-curr stuff, middly child can get lost though. Parking around school horrendous!
