I've just registered and have been reading some of the discussions going on. It would be great if I could get anyones thoughts & opinions on this....
We have a 15 month old son and are planning to move to a bigger house next Spring as we have now outgrown what was my husband's smallish ex-batchelor pad!
This of course raises the question, which school catchment(s) should we consider. We feel that the most important part of schooling is secondary school and so of course we're keen to move into the catchment area for the best secondary school for our son.
I have looked at the Ofstead reports which has helped but I also think its really important to get local parents' opinions i.e what schools are like, straight from the horses mouth! I appreciate that in 10 year's time, things may be different but for now we will need to go with current opinion, which is where I'm hoping Mumsnetters will help.
Please let me know what you think of the Winchester state schools and what your experiences of them are. (We may consider independents too) . Thankyou very much!
