That's an interesting explanation reeyah,
Had a concern about Hands...Grammar We attended the open evening and I'm sure u must have. The Headteacher was saying " earlier on we saw only VR score but now due to competition we will see all the others as well". I am worried for this school as well bcoz DS is not very good in English. what r ur thoughts on this ?
You will be shocked now, but I haven't visited ANY school!! I have literally just given up. A few weeks ago I was worried sick about everything, but after seeing how much intense work is going on with other children, I fear my DS has no hope
. As for Handsworth, I wouldn't send my DS there anyway. We have a parent from our school who has DS there for two years. She said it's an awful school with 'gang culture' feel to it. She said her son has been targeted for his mobile phone, something which shocked me. Plus, the school is too far fro
Hall Green, so I'd rather send my DS to a decent comp, rather than a 'poor man's Grammar school..
Omg, I've just realised I wrote HG!!! So sorry, I meant HALL GREEN school!!
You're right, they have always said they look at VR first. I'm surprised u were told that on the Open Eve. They must be getting an influx of applications now then. Do u live near any decent Comps at all?? I can't rem, did u say u live near Great Barr?
