Anyone still thinking of 2015/16 entry at the KE schools, the scores are still valid. Seems to me that missing only one term is not such a bad thing.
My instinct tells me that CHG have at least one spare place
I reckon someone has just turned down a place then, but thanks for the clarification
You state that (I quote you): 'Of course I could be trolling CHG, but again I have no particular reason to pick on them.'
What I observe is that you are precisely posting posts which could leave many newbies confused and concerned, as you have already done with Aquacarey.
I do not manage to put my finger on the reason why some people like to bash at the CH schools, spreading myths about them while these posters even do not know them. Even for the parents having children in these schools, it takes time to know the school, the staff, the curriculum, the many opportunities offered... I am under the impression that this particular attitude does not really target the other GS in and around Birmingham...
From what I have noticed in the past, I know that some children who have been privately educated during their primary school years struggle after that once placed in a school with larger classes and maybe an approach to learning where more efforts is asked from them due to an emphasis on independent learning. Sometimes, these children are put back in the private sector after a short spell in the state sector.
Therefore, I will repost my previous posts on the FW and CHB thread as I had written them with my heart but I had removed them as I do not like to be too much open about my feelings and private life.
