I am a bit confused about Colfe's school. Some parents have recommended it but the school ranking is confusing. They do have IB and I suppose that is messing up with the League Tables.
Does anyone have children at Colfe's? Would you choose Colfe's over Eltham College, Dartford and Beths?
Thank you

Well done to your DS for getting through the exams and to the waiting list for Seven Oaks. If paying fees is an issue , I would certainly not choose Dartford over Colfes. In terms of academic standards, Dartford and Eltham perform better than Colfes. You can get an objective view by looking at the gcse and a level tables on the bbc website or the DFES website. Beths has excellent gcse grades but their EB grades were quite low and you know the government now rate schools on eb grades for gcse . I know parents at Colfes and it is a very good school but in order of preference , I would choose dartford(free) or eltham ( fee paying). My DS is at eltham but I am not biased lol!

Thank you for you feedback. We will have to wait until 1 March to learn about Grammar placement.
We haven't heard from Eltham yet about interviews - next week I guess. My friends son is at Eltham and they are very pleased.
