I am also attending all the open days. Some with my DS and some without.
I am confused as to why so many of the open days for grammar are before the results are out. It does make it hard for DS to actually get too excited about each school and also for us to manage him in the direction we want.
We attended a boys grammar very recently and attended the head talk. It was a disappointment not only to me but also to my DS as he came out saying he didn't want to go.
It really is hard to pick through all the marketing of each school and find out which ones right for your individual DS, isn't?!
Keep in touch, would be good to hear your thougths of the open days as you attend. All the best Myrtle
