We are applying to Southbank for our 2 children and are trying to set up a tour. We were asked which campus we prefer, but without touring the school it is a little hard to know. And the website descriptions make both campuses sound great. Can anyone let me know the fundamental differences between the 2 campuses? If one campus better than the other if you have a child that is very active and loves sports? Thanks in advance.
One thing I would point out, it that in the last few years, over 50 pupils were found to have been sexually abused by a teacher at the school. If you google around, you’ll find a serious case review commissioned by the local authorities + repeatedly failed Ofsted reports for the school not being up to scratch with their welfare and safeguarding procedures.
The stuff is 3-4 years old now so the school might have sorted itself out since. I’d proceed with caution and would want to see a robust system for ensuring your children remain safe at the school.
