Thank you Poppins and moselymum for your candid replies
We too were very disappointed mostly about the things that have been mentioned already.
But what has really made us reconsider is that DD didn't like it at all
She enjoyed the open day and worked incredibly hard to gain a place
But has now changed her mind and wants to go to Solihull School instead
And tbh I think she will fit in better there too (very tomboyish and sporty)
She found KEHS quite stuffy and academic (her words!)
Maybe KEHS don't really have to "hard sell" as they know they will always get the brightest girls joining and there are always more applicants than places
This was not evident at all the Solihull meetings we have been too, in fact completely opposite
Really welcoming , friendly, enthusiastic and really "showing off" their school.
They also have many more applicants than places.
I don't mean to offend any prospective/current parents of KEHS
I am just voicing my opinion.
