Hi all, anyone know if there is one?? i still there is RGS but that looks like fee paying. Am planning on moving to area and have considered private schooling on/off for a while. Anyone any experience at all? Thank you in advance. DS is only 9 currently so thinking ahead!! DD is 3 so even further away for her
Why are you so hung up on Grammar schools? The LEA as a whole achieves above-average results despite being poorly funded in comparison to inner-cities. There are some excellent schools eg in the Malvern area (i.e. the Herefordshire end of the county).
Was talking to another mum about they have guest speakers etc in that really encourage aspiration that so far I've not experienced with state education. It's just a thought really. Plan to have a good look around some
Lots of good non-selective schools have great, inspirational guest speakers in too
I really like the middle school system- seems a much more gentle way of moving up schools, seems more supportive, and they have far less of a drop-off between Y6 and Y7 that other areas with pri/sec have.
