ad77 Sat 26-Aug-17 12:26:42 Hello Everyone I'm new to this and just wondering if anyone can advise me about ESMS Or St Gorges school as my DD will be starting her S2 ? Im considering cliftonhall and stewart's melville college as well for my DS he will be starting his sixth form next year Any recommendations please . Many Thanks
My daughter wen to Mary Erskines Junior School, part of SM at the time, and I was very happy with it. St George's has always had the reputation of being a lot more snobbish. I have a relative who taught at SM too, a very good school.
Cliftonhall is a lovely school but according to a friend who has children there, not very academic.
Places are limited in Scottish unis for a number of reasons, to do with fees that can be charged to home students vs Scottish students, there is also a lot of competition for places as no-one except the very well off would want to pay for something in England that they could get free in Scotland... if your son is sixth form he wouldn't get a free place until he'd lived here for three years.
Thank you LonnyVonnyWilsonFrickett hopefully if things go according to the plan we will be moving there in the start of next year .My DD got place in st George's hope it's a good school My son like cliftonhall school for sixth form ? But im not sure ?
