Whilst STILL making my decision about schools
I am now trying to factor my other son into our decision. Anyway not being as bright, but bright enough to pass the entrance exams (I think) should I:
a. Put him into the same school as his brother, which if it was the most academic he would be bottom of a bright group
b. Choose a different school where he was within the top group, without educational compromise.
I really want them to go to the same school as they never have done which has been so difficult logistically and for friendship groups, and also for them to have a tighter bond. I also want to give my youngest as much opportunity as my eldest so is it negative for him to be, in my opinion, a very academic school where he will do well but may never feel he has done well because most other boys are brighter than him. My eldest no longer wants to be a big fish in a small pond, so the most academic of our choices is looking likely for him. I'm confused.
