Hello everyone -
I’ve decided to send my daughter to an independent school for primary, and have narrowed it down to Berkhampstead and Richard Pate in Cheltenham. Having real trouble deciding between them. I like Berkhampstead’s slightly more play-led ethos, plus they have specialist teachers throughout. But Richard Pate also seems excellent and their facilities are certainly better. They just seem a bit more academic and so perhaps a shade more intense than I might like for my child. Both schools get great results in terms of the children getting into grammars etc.
Wondering if anyone out there has any opinions or insights into these schools to help me make up my mind! I have already looked at and discounted the others in the area (St Edwards, Airthrie, Dean Close, Cheltenham College).
Many thanks for anyone’s views/experiences!-
