My DS is starting at Sutton Grammar this September. As he is the only one from his school to try and get a place at SGS we don't know anyone. I would like to hear from parents or pupils at SGS some words of reassurance so I can pass them on to him as he is really worried
My DS is having a great time there - he is in year 7. Homework is given when appropriate rather than to a time timetable (so far not much). There are lots of clubs at lunchtimes and after school. There are many football teams so that they can cater for the different levels of the boys rather than just one for the best players. The pastoral care is very good.
There is the open day in July where he will meet his class mates, my DS signed up for the 3 days of sports towards the end of the holidays (you can choose how many to attend) and last year the year sevens had an afternoon at school by themselves.
