For years both schools have been very similar in terms of types of families that go to the schools and their results. Both have the mix of very able and bright children and those who find learning very difficult. Historically Ratton was always better for music and drama, Cavendish for sport. I'm not sure this is still the case. We're a few years away from secondary schools for our DC. If things stay the same, I'd be happy for them to choose either school.
