Blue when you said single sex school affected your DS confidence. Do you mean mixed school is better or worse.
We know some people are more for single sex. Some cultural group have a distinct preference, for various reasons. My assumption without thinking it through is girls school is best, but I never thought it could or would affect confidence around opposite sex.
Do you think this is a major factor to consider before deciding. All the possible mixers we have are drivel apart from KEFW and the cut is pretty high for that
I feel DS being around boys all day 5 days a week has made him quite shy and reserved around girls.
I would prefer DS2 to go to a mixed school and he has said he would prefer that also. However he changes his mind constantly so we will see what happens. If he has scored well enough for Five Ways that will definitely be an option to consider with it being mixed. I do know boys are still a majority though.
Being Asian, back in the day my parents would have loved us being separated from the boys but I definitely am glad we went to a mixed school.
Girls were right ***ches in our school, and a school full of them would have been horrendous.
The mixed versus single sex school is something to definitely consider.
The only way we have got around the travelling issue is that we have a great deal of family near the school so my DS will stay over with family a couple of days a week.
