There has been a mass exodus from the school recently as the planning permission for the new site was denied. Lots of talk about it on local Facebook groups. Have heard bad things about behaviour and staff turnover, also know people very happy with the school (though this was before the planning permission debacle)
Unfortunately, the planning permission didn't get the approval from the council and since they cannot stay in the temporary premises, it's possible that the school may close. They will try to appeal but it that isn't successful, you DC may end up in a school you didn't choose in the first place. They have even cancelled Open Days because of this situation. It's a pity because I really liked the ethos of the school and participated in a few meetings when the institution was just a project. A big loss in my opinion.
