I agree - sorry if we are not much help but it is a personal choice for your DS/yourself. With those scores he should be offered his first choice of school. I believe only STR maintains a waiting list, but there isn't really anything you do to push yourself up it
Things to consider when making your choice:-
Siblings - Do you have any other children who are going to secondary school over the next few years? If so, what school would you be looking at for them? Logistics is the main problem for parents who have children at different schools. Don't forget evening events which your DS (and you
) may have to attend so think of journey times.
Expense - bus journey prices are only going to rise
. Can your DS walk/cycle to school?
