It isn't academically selective, and in particular takes boarders from difficult backgrounds. The Headmaster is a bit marmite - you love him or hate him. He tries to pitch it as a "value for money" boarding option (saw him delivering the pitch together with Caterham and Woldingham, and he was at least entertaining in the midst of the opposition). I thought mumoverseas had a dd there? From my impression she started off impressed but certainly wasn't by the time her dd left.
Um, I don't want to put you off as such, but it probably does depend on what your other options are?
Hi my DS wants this school as his first choice for year 7 entry boarding in Sept 2014. He is an outgoing sporty participative active child and I think he would love it BUT I am a bit worried about the academic side.
What's the teaching like? Do they push the children?
The school has mixed reviews some are a bit old so I would love to hear from parents of children there or have just left. Thanks
