Ds has 245, so even if entry mark goes up 10 points he still has a good chance of getting into chb.....fingers crossed.
We r also considering kes Stratford...he is ranked 45
We are in Solihull.
We know dc with marks of 263 and 280 so would be ds be "bottom of the class"?
My ds doesn't have a preference.
The travel would be slightly shorter to chb.
I liked kes stratford more...gut feeling and so did my dh and my younger ds
But chb send more boys to Oxbridge and seems to be academically better and after a couple of years he could get the public bus and get home quicker.
What would you do or pls suggest other points to consider.
I would definitely go with your gut feeling. Where would your ds 'fit in better?' If it's KES-then go for that school.
All the best.
