I would love ideas for our DS as It’s so hard to tell from prospectuses etc .
Excellent Pastoral care would be essential too and co Ed probably suits him best but interested to hear of any good schools.
Thank you!

Bryanston? A couple of friends went there on music scholarships, admittedly a long time ago, but they loved it and one went on to play for London philharmonic.

Alleyns though getting in isn’t easy.

Teaching is supposed to be as good as at some specialist music schools. Pm me for more details.

Trinity in Croydon has very strong music department, excellent pastoral care, academic but still quite rounded. It’s co-Ed in the sixth form.
Generous bursary and scholarship budget/award too !

SW or SW London??

Thank you so much for these replies. (South West not SW London .)
That’s interesting Bryanston has good music, it would make sense geographically for us but I’m not convinced right for DS .

Does anyone know Sherborne?
