I was pretty disappointed and didn't get that warm glow. They will really benefit from the new building work. It must be quite tough for some of the teachers in the old terrapins.
They don't have an equestrian team as the head feels it is too high risk ! Amazing as all the other grammars have them and she is happy to send students off skiing ! a much riskier sport. So as a horse loving family it's a no from us.
On the plus side I felt so glad I went to Ribston not Denmark road:0) I benefitted from excellent pastoral care and lovely caring teachers.
it's the wrong side of town for us anyway so glad we went to confirm it as a non runner. It always depends what you are comparing to of course. Quite disappointed though as I always got the impression it was a better school than Ribston. Evidently not !
Let's be honest, any school's equestrian "team" is more to do with the pastime/interest of the family rather than the school getting together for a weekly practice?! I have a brilliant picture in my mind of all horsey kids turning up for Tuesday afternoon horse trials on the playing field!! Hahaha!!!
