Hello all
First of all many thanks to all the contributors on the forum - up until now I've been a non-member but found it really useful.

We're relocating this Summer to be within commuting distance of London.

We put KEGS on our CAF and my DS scored sufficiently high that he should be OK as an out of area boy.

I just wondered what parents with boys at KEGS thought of it - we've learn a lot from the website and virtual open day but I thought it would be good to get first hand views.
Many thanks

My son is currently in Year 7 at KEGS.
He loves it there and has settled in really well. We are from out of catchment and only two other kids from his primary school are at the school (different classes). He gets a coach to and from school and he is coping well with the journey and slightly earlier start.
They do work them hard though - they have a LOT of homework - average 3 pieces per day , sometimes 4 or 5.
The expected standard of work is high and you sense that from the very beginning. The also expect the children to be very independent and communicate more directly with the boys. For instance, there is nowhere for parents to see what homework they have been assigned - they communicate directly with the boys and expect them to record and monitor it. Parents are only notified if the get 'referrals' for not handing in their homework when due!
Due to the pandemic, they have missed out on all the extra curricular and practical elements of education. KEGS also seem to have taken an extremely risk averse approach and they haven't done anything like cooking or workshop time for DT.
Let me know any questions you might have and I will try my best to answer.
