He goes to lots of schools - too many details would identify him and therefore me!
Boys schools often smell of wee and have lots of broken bits Catholic schools are often disorganised and very multicultural BUT they are cheery places and the staff and kids seem happier there than at many others and they pay his bills promptly - always a plus in my book!!!
TalkinPeace2 - I hope your DH isn't as negative and perhaps as cynical as you - perhaps even bordering on @@@@@. Gunnersbury school is an excellent school - with several students reaching Oxbridge each year, many to great universities plus a great mix of sport, music and the academic.
deadbeat I'm delighted that the school has got kids into Oxbridge. My cynicism is based on feedback from the number of schools I hear about- over 100 a year. It's not hard to do well with the top few. Helping the middle invisible block achieve is the trick that only really good schools manage.
