Does anyone have any views on Ravenscourt Park Prep vs. it's sister school Kew Gardens Prep?

We've been for an open day at RRPS and whilst the facilities and set-up were brilliant we were left disappointed by the presentation by the Head and his management team - very scripted, wasn't clear what they really believed in/what the schools about and there was a surprising lack of gravitas from a team that clearly have to deal with challenging parents. We have a couple of friends who have children at Kew Green and they sing it's praises - particularly the staff and the schools ethos around supporting and nurturing the individual child. RPPS works better for us location wise and we hadn't previously considered Kew due to location but now think it may be worth a look. Would appreciate any thoughts?

what do you mean by "challenging" parents?

All I mean (and appreciate that 'challenging' perhaps wasn't the right word) is that in a fee paying school you generally have parents that are quite assertive

Money making schools. Profit comes first - they're owned privately.
