Please help! I'm looking for a London Prep school starting in 2016 in Year 3 (ideally north or central London but will consider elsewhere, prefer one which goes up to age 13) BUT my DC has been described as being bright (currently in Y1 at pre prep and in top sets) but cannot perform well in exam conditions due to moderate Autism, moderate to severe ADD and moderate Dyspraxia..... Current school have said that although very bright DC is "not 7+ material" due to recent poor performance in end of year tests where performance was at the national average for age. I'm hoping that in the future exam performance will reflect true ability. Any suggestions for London Preps gratefully recieved!

Thanks, unfortunately I don't think Abingdon would be good enough on academics, though maybe I should investigate further.

I got the impression they thought they were.

I agree starlight - it does get very good results. However I hadn't realised they were good with SEN (pleasantly surprised!). Do you have recent experience?

Hm, I think I may have been looking at the wrong school - I thought I remembered seeing GCSE results, but I've just seen it's a Prep only... Are you talking about Abingdon House near Regents Park? I will read up about it as it looks possibly good from the website.
