Hello everyone, first ever post and quite new, please be gentle!
The info on here is fab and I wish I had found it sooner
Can anyone offer a reasoned opinion on our dilemma? Appreciate time is short, and we need to submit the CAF; cest la vie!
DS has a healthy qualifying score for STRS and we have had a good look around the school. He is quite sporty but also very competent at Maths and loves science. We have a very good comp down the road and he also may get a chance of a Pates place subject to the waiting list...
DS also has a good mark for Crypt and is 120 for Marling but we have dismissed both of these due to distance from home.
There seems to be lots posted on the forum regarding Pates but very little on STRS. The 2 yr8s who showed us around had only very complementary things to say about the school, but I guess that's why they were chosen as ambassadors
Does anyone have an opinion about STRS? (good, bad or indifferent) We don't want to get DS's hopes up either way as he has done exceptionally well in the test and we are incredibly proud of him.
