Can anybody tell me what would be the main differences between AGSB and Sale Grammer. Maybe they have experiences or children attending these schools.
I did not manage to make the AGSB open evening and only got a very swift look at Sale Grammer.
My impressions are that AGSB is more academic whilst Sale does not get equivalent results but is more relaxed. I may be way off.
Yes I think your last paragraph may be accurate if you look at the league tables. Also, the big difference is that Sale Grammar has girls, which could be a distraction, or not, depending on your child.
We had a similar choice to yours, either AGGS or Sale and chose AGGS because I thought an all girls school would suit my DD better, and the fact that its walking distance, whereas Sale would have been a walk and a tram ride away.
