Did you go to the open evening last night? We went and liked what we saw, though unfortunately the horrendous traffic from sutton through to Wallington reinforced for us that it might just be too difficult a journey for our DS.
One thing I did notice (particularly in relation to earlier concerns about music) that there wasn't a lot of music going on at all. There was one boy strumming away on the guitar in a music room and visitors had a chance to have a go on the electronic keyboards, but that was about it. To be fair, I am comparing it with Tiffin boys last year where music is obviously a really big deal - choirs and orchestras everywhere, but also at Sutton last year there seemed a bigger emphasis on music.
Apart from that, it's great that Wallington has its playing fields on site, that makes a big difference IMO. The boys were all a pleasure to speak to (without exception) but the thing I was most impressed with was the enthusiasm of the teachers, particularly in all of the science rooms. DS was enthralled and literally had to be dragged out of a couple of the rooms. Also excellent that they now offer food technology (boys need to learn to cook too!) but slightly disappointed with the limited languages offering (French and spanish only).
Anyone else think it was a bit over the top to have police close off local roads. I appreciate residents have concerns about parking, but honestly, we thought there had been multiple murders when we first arrived
