at 11 - for scholarship very for normal pretty - most of the kids ship in from outside Southampton. 6th form - the state schools round here (other than catholic) only go to GCSE so a fair few academic ones go in then.
Oh that's good gramercy - that takes pressure off. My ds is currently at grammar school and wants to go there for 6th form, so that should hopefully be okay.
Our dd is currently only year 2, but we would like her to go there for all of secondary. Currently in top set of prep school, but like i say only year 2, but hopefully not in the dim category, so not being unrealistic going for it.
Westernisle I've nothing against KES - I have friends with kids there and friends who teach there - BUT if you live to the North of Southampton, the State secondaries are darn near as good. Stroud kids tend to stay in private HCS kids seem to flow back and forth to the Romsey secondaries (unlesstheir parents live on the WAterside) I'm not able to afford the fes but freinds who can, choose to spend that money on riding, sailing and holidays!
