Hiya,sorry couldn't get on here for a while.
Each family had a 10 minute meeting with Matthew Tate at the Hope Church offices in Sevenoaks. His evening appointments on our particular evening were full & all parents seemed to be turning up turning up for their allocated session. We liked him (even my husband thought he was OK & he's extremely hard to please).
We will be appealing for a GS place for our DD in March but if we don't succeed we may well make 'the leap' depending on how well things are coming together for Trinity. I would really like to see the school succeed regardless of whether our DD goes there or not but they have an awful lot to get organised before September
Our DD is of course very excited about the possibility of starting at a brand new school but as parents we have to be more practical. They have absolutely no history good or bad and that's massive. That said though,they are under enormous pressure to do well & with only 120 pupils to teach in their 1st year the school is definitely worth considering (in our opinion).
Theres an enrichment day for all the registered children on 9th Feb so hopefully we'll have more information then. Will let you know how it goes....
