So, we've spent the last few weeks since results day contemplating which school to choose as 1st preference for our DS. We are I/C for both SHSB and WHSB - WHSB being slightly nearer. Initially, we wanted WHSB, then swung nearer to SHSB and now back possibly to WHSB!
We attended both open evenings in the summer and really liked WHSB, but also were happy with SHSB! We have also been to both enquiry evenings last week. DS has no particular preference and has good friends from school that will be going to both.
It looks as though we may be swaying back towards WHSB but I wondered if anyone else has chosen this for their son as a 1st choice? I've heard stories just like everyone else has, but surely all 184 children in Yr 7 aren't unhappy with the education they receive?!! Our son is quite studious, gets his head down at school and isn't particularly sporty (he enjoys music too).
I know every child is different but would really appreciate any inside info from boys who are already at WHSB - are they thriving / surviving??! Is anyone else choosing WHSB over SHSB?
1 more week until final decision time, help..........
