Just wondering if there are any parents currently sending their dc to any of these schools. I'm hoping you can give me advice on experiences regarding travel, school etc
Went to KE Aston this morning, closest to grammar to us. but was not impressed with the facilities. Everything seemed a little too cramped, narrow corridors, small dinning hall and not much greenery onsite. However Teachers were very friendly and children well mannered. Pupils did mention that since the safe route had been established there have been no incidents for 18 months. It was my first choice but now im not so sure.
I am seriously considering Five Ways or BV. BV travel is to catch the 7:45 train at duddeston train station and then 9 minute walk to school 30 mins to get there. Five Ways would be a car drive to fox and goose for green bus at 7ish so 1 hr and 15 mins travel,.
I don't think there is much between either of these schools academically, but Five ways seems to have more extra curricular activities plus a onsite swimming pool / climbing wall, which just happen to be my sons favourite pastimes
Would really love some advice to help me decide which order i should put school preferences. Oh by the way son is fairly shy and dw is insisting no green bus' she is worried he might be bullied all the way to school ....
