Please help!!!! I'm relocating to Edgbaston. My DS is currently in yr4 and my DD is currently in yr3. DS has been offered a place at Westhouse and Hallfield (no places available for yr5 at Blue Coat). My DD has been offered a place by BlueCoat and Hallfield. I need to inform the schools of my decision by tomorrow morning. If my children were younger I'd be thinking about the overall "experience and journey". I'll be honest and straightforward - at this stage my main agenda is to get my daughter and son into a local grammar school. Hallfield has excellent results but the head said they don't practice CEM type questions or typical exam questions at school. Ideally I'd like to send them both to the same school - the only option for that would be Hallfield. Any views/opinions/experience of these schools and their success relating to grammar school prep and entrance? I understand the argument for and against, but I won't be considering a state school. Many thanks in advance.

I presume you have seen this on Hallfields website.It was in the parents section.There is also information for the 2013/14 year.

Thank you Quasimodo. Yes I have. I wondered if there were any other opinions or views about these schools.

I know children at both and all have gone on to grammar schools or KES/KEHS bar one from Bluecoat who went to EHS. My impression is that Hallfield is a nicer school, Bluecoat seems ultra competitive to me. As far as I can tell all the kids at both schools have tutors as well as prep at school.
