Hi - we've just discovered that we're within the catchment for this school. It looks quite good on paper - does anyone have any experience of it? Thanks.

It is only good on paper. I did a bit of work there. It is not the best choice for academic minded children. I was shocked when more than 3/4 of year 8 children want to be plumber, builder, boxer etc. Only one boy whose father is an accountant think of being a doctor. I saw fights often as well. Don't be deceived with their academy status or teacher training status. In fact, they are satisfied with "C", recently ht told us they are now thinking of how to move from the "C" to "B". Do your research well. Children finish with better results go to another better school for sixth form. The football academy was to attract more sixth formers as not many good students go their for the sixth form.

Thank you so much. It sounds totally unsuitable. I really appreciate you taking the time to reply. No-one I spoke to knew anything about it as we're in Greenwich not Bromley. Thanks again. DS says thanks too.
