I think it depends on your son's academic strengths - and where you live!
You need to go round during the school day and 'get a feel' for them - then ask 'which will suit my son?'

They are both outstanding - neither is better and we are so privileged to have such fine schools locally.

Challoner's tends to be harder to get into (see other posts on this forum, but some years they don't even have room for all who live IN catchment, where as RGS has had spare places in recent years).

Not that necessarily makes Challoner's better for your son, but it does mean that if you do prefer it, you need to look carefully at where you live to decide if it's a viable choice.

Thanks for your replies, Son has SEN. is currently going to RGS but wanted to send him to DCGS. They did not want him gave hundreds of accuses, appealed and won but stayed with RGS because they were very keen to have him. Son doing really well! Just wondering if we did make the right choice in the end??????

He's doing well, they are keen to have him.

The other school made tons of excuses not to have him???

OF COURSE YOU MADE THE RIGHT CHOICE, however good teh other school is perceived tobe, his present school wants him and values him...

no brainer!!

Why worry about "what ifs" when you say he's happy, wanted and doing really well? Why try to get into a school that didn't want him (where he surely wouldn't be happy)? Bizarre question! wake up and smell the coffee!
