Hi, does anyone have any experience of Charterhouse Square School and / or Cavendish (in Camden)? We have to make a decision between the two in very short order!
Both got outstanding school inspections with glowing reports. We like that Charterhouse is co-ed but don't like the lack of outdoor space. We got a nice feel from Cavendish when we visited.
Any thoughts welcome! Thanks.

I've seen both but don't have children there. I do know people who have children at both and they are both very happy with it. When I looked round I preferred Charterhouse Square but this may be that a slightly more academically focussed school is one that would suit me better.

Charterhouse Square has a reputation as a hothouse but I didn't see that when I was there - the head said she'd made a few changes and I really liked what she had to say about children needing to be confident in order to learn. One thing I did think was a bit funny was that she said that 23 out of 26 children were also tutored - she said that this was not something she thought was necessary but it reflected the sort of parents who choose that school.

I hope this is some help.
