Am looking at secondary options for next year. I know it is early days (and there are bound to be some teething problems) but has anyone got any experience of how the first term of offering Secondary has gone at Cobham Free School?
I know that they have spaces in the current year 7 - they did not fill their predicted intake. Not surprising - many parents may be put off by their dc being the oldest at the school and first year of GCSEs etc, but more so they are on same site as primary school, with last I heard no planning permission for another school as yet. So they are likely to be in rather cramped facilities for two more years at least I guess.
hopefully someone with first hand knowlege of teaching will come along !
Dh went round (looking for potential start this year) & found it difficult to get a feel for it given the stage they are at. I know a few ppl who ave put it as first choice but wouldn't be totally surprised if there are a few spaces this year. Have you looked at Heathside & Thamesmead as other local decent secondaries (although neither are quite up with Howard of Effingham!)
