I know nothing about it, apart from their website - but someone mentioned it to me as being a good school not too far away to consider. dd is currently Y4 in state primary, but I'm starting to investigate options!
As no one is biting. I have heard only good things around here and of pleased and satisfied parents. Really making an effort to be supportive and pastorally strong as well as having ambitions to compete with the established academic schools. Only thing that would worry me is that it is a business with board of Governors that includes representatives of the venture capital company that invested in it's development but no suggestion that it is profiteering or whatever, probably a silly quibble since all these schools are big businesses. I think there was/is some criticism of Heads of more established schools that they are more MD than Head. Other thing I wonder about is that they use St Mary's for sport, if that will come under pressure once St Richard Reynolds start to make more demands of the facilities.
You see the Head or Deputy saying goodbye to each pupil and parent / carer at the door at pick up time and none of the pupils manifest the playboy bunny / lad culture you may encounter at other academic schools
Lovely school. Head acts like a Head should and absolutely not an MD. DD loves it. It's size means that it lacks some of the swankier facilities to be found at bigger independent schools but it more than makes up for it in teaching, pastoral, intimacy and generally lovely kids. Beautiful looking school too, inside and out, and location is sensational.
