I had same choice few years back - but things change.
QM - really liked the head. Liked their all-round academic support, cadets, but couldn't entirely convince other half.
KEFW - liked the school. Location (travel impact) not so great for us as it happens. New head - pink/purple decor scared me. Perfectly 1950's BBC-spoken head-girl - felt artificial, but hey ho! Lots of short skirts apparent - but that may or may not cf with SG, HG. Sorry - just how I saw it at the time. Great school: buildings, subject choice, academic results.
Shame they chose or had to ditch IB I thought, but probably better to focus not dilute (ala CHB, CHB) - concentrate resources and try to make up for any narrowness of A'levels elsewhere.
Didn't like the idea of traveling in the dark during winter. Especially that alleyway. DS is staying on later at school for clubs and finishing off work now, but it feels safe, and he's confident where he is. (so I pray!)
It is another great school though.
They both are.
Hi Thanks for the input..
Did you decide on KEFW?
