Can anyone with boys at either school give me a really honest answer?

Is your DS happy at CVMS? I felt it was a bit "bleak"? Is my impression wrong? Our DS is at a very good Catholic State Primary but school has disappointed me - with low expectations. Would I see the same at CVMS?

Emanuel - underlying worry that peer pressure further up the school may be a worry?

My son just loves CVMS and very happy. He is in year four and knows that that the school's ethos and teaching are superb and giving him an education that is a privilege. Don't forget that the school seeks to have a wide ability intake (which is streamed) and a pan-London intake, so his friends may be a but scattered.

What about sports and space. It seems a very small site. I saw a class running around the block - as a PE class. Along one of the most polluted streets in London. I just thought with Holland Park on their door step why are they running where it is so obviously so polluted? I know they have a games site over in Twickenham so it rather took me by surprise especially as the medical world is saying that such exposure to pollution at this age could have serious threat to the kids health in later life.
