I've recently found myself searching through the websites of various independent schools (which we absolutely cannot afford) just to look at all the amazing facilities they have
I suppose it is a sort of masochism, but I would rather compare it to those people who pretend they are looking to buy a very expensive house but are actually just being nosey and want to see how "the other half" live
I fully appreciate that a school is soooooo much more than its facilities, but I can't help but let out a little sigh when I see those swimming pools, sports halls, drama studios, theatres
and more......... particularly when I know how much my own DC would relish having the opportunity to use them all.
This isn't supposed to start a discussion about the pros and cons of independent v state by the way (there are many things I dislike about both systems!) but I was hoping that I'm not the only sad person on this forum that sometimes can't help themselves
