Help! Needing some advice for the January deadline. We live near Heber, Goodrich and the new Harris. Does anyone have any insights?

I really liked the new Harris but it's only been open for a couple of years and it's on a main road. Is more results driven but seems a more exciting curriculum. Heber is literally a couple of minutes walk but a bit shambolic and gets pretty average results. It's obviously a very caring cosy school though.

Probably over thinking it all but there are massive pluses/ minuses for both. Anyone with any thoughts?

(Also posted questions on the east dulwich forum but think people might be a bit more honest here!)

All three are fine. Goodrich is doing really well these days, Heber seems to be in a bit of a transition period awaiting new leadership (a few years ago it was THE school to get into) and Harris is Harris with the power of a big chain behind them. I'd go for Goodrich personally: staff are kind, not shouty, standards are high, school is always improving and it's nicely tucked away.

Hi rungichungi, which school did you go with in the end and are you happy with the choice? I'm in similar circumstances this year
