Hi

We only managed to get around 2 Grammar schools before the Kent test results came out. We live in Herne Bay and my son absolutely loved Queen Elizabeth at Faversham. It had a lovely feel, friendly and the art and DT departments were great. These are the areas my son loves and has most interest in. We are putting this as our first choice even though we are just within their catchment area, though this isn't the closest school to us.

My question is I am struggling to put 2nd, 3rd and 4th choices. We only managed to get to Barton Court which seemed like a nice school but we weren't sure that his creative side would be catered for, they only do art every two weeks. I am also unsure of the International Baccalaureate. He would prefer a mixed school though.

Does anyone have any experiences of Barton, Langton, Dane Court and Chatham House.?? How well are their creative subjects catered for??.. To me friendliness and happiness come first before any league tables.

My only experience of Langton has been the rude PA who wouldn't allow us to visit the school despite advisingher we had missed the last open session due to a death in the family. She basically said it was tough!!!... This attitude hasleft me with a bad feeling about this school.

HELP?????? Very confused and running out of time.

Hi,

It has been mentioned on here that the closing date for the SCAF has been moved to the end of the first week after half term. Would it be possible to visit the other schools you are thinking of in that week?? Offices in some schools are open so you could try ringing to ask?? Everyone has very differing opinions and what suits one child might not suit another.
