....the HT might be a bit of a showman, but he is not just talking the talk.
I have been to 4 of the open days and can say that what is shown and talked about on each of those evenings is a true representation of the school.
He seemed very enthusiastic & I understand he is hands on in that he does take some classes as well. His talk was all without notes & as I say, very emotive.
In contrast the HT of Judds gave a very dry talk & DH & DS were not impressed. I think though that he had scheduled a talk every half hour throughout the evening & was trying to cram a lot of info (facts & figures) into the talk & so used notes & really rushed it.
Despite the schools always seeming to be compared, they felt quite different in atmosphere, but saying that, I would be very happy with either (pleeeease) - roll on Monday!!
