I didn't go...but dh did with ds.
They were impressed with how "hands on"they allowed the children to be,but for us it was a little too results driven(seemingly more so than Pates?) and apparently it was pretty much all the head went on about-the fact that they had the top GCSE scores and on and on about Ofsted.
Important,of course ,but it really seemed an at all costs approach.The husband didn't think the head said much more than keep on about these.
Ds liked it,but he likes Pate's alot more(he would!)when asked why,his response was the Crypt was more what he expected a Grammar school to be...where as Pate's was more "curvy"...apparently
..I think i get where he was coming from there?!
In any case,tbh,its a little too far to consider for us but we wanted him to see it.Just Tommys next week now-oh and the ickle matter of October 9th!
