If you choose St Joes he can stay to 18, Crossfields only goes to 13
Agree with all the above, Crossfields have had good success at placing boys at 13+ you can see the list on their website always a good sign, they've had some very good years at getting 13+ entry to Reading School if you want an academic and fee free environment.
Crossfileds is a sporty boys prep school, St Jo's is a Catholic girls school, both are in the process (it takes time) of going co-ed. So which suits your DS best, only you can tell?
Another odd thing I discovered during research last year is that St Jo's have some bursary funding from the defunct Presentation college.
