I believe we are in a similar situation, i.e. ds on the waiting list at Wallington, so we are trying harder on Sutton and Wilson's
best of luck, maybe they will be class mates
so far I found out that it does not seem there is clear difference between the three exams, a neighbourgh knows of people that passed one and not the others, and so on
plus another neighbour has a guaranteed place at Wall but still trying Wilson's, but not Sutton
I've got the impression people tend to prefer Wilson's to Sutton
how was it for your elder son? did yo find the same?
I think you will find a very broad mix in terms of which school people prefer. Geography of course may be an issue, but we got quite a different feel at all 3 and had no hesitation in having Sutton first!
The exams all cover the same subjects but do vary considerably in content and of course the time in the academic year you can sit them which I think really works to the boys advantage as gives them 3 different chances and you really do see some passing one and not the others.
All 3 are good schools.
