Hi all
DS has to start reception in September and hopefully he will be offered a place in all 3 mentioned schools. I'm visiting Brigidine this week and have seen the other two. St B don't have long hours which is one reason we might not be selecting it.
Long Close offers everything and is a clear winner but I'm getting bit attracted to Brig because of the small class size and the fees.
I read somewhere Brig School might be becoming free and doubts as to why the class sizes are small.
Any reviews of both schools will be helpful.

When I went to look round the Brigidine for DS I was not impressed at all.

It was about 11am, so not a break time or anything, but barely any of the classrooms had any evidence of any learning taking place. The Bursar (who showed me round) also proudly informed me that from Nursery the boys learn football and the girls learn ballet. hmm

The school has regularly been in the news over the last few years for being in financial difficulties, so I'd be really cautious if I were you.
