Thanks elizabethswan, my dd & I went to see ACA yesterday & I have to say we were both very impressed. It has a lovely feel to it & the lady who showed us around, mrs speakman (I think) was obviously very passionate about the school & also about keeping the intake to 169.
We looked around AOM today & we were both disappointed, it seemed a bit small for the number of students, I don't like how they stream the children, they put your child in a set for all subjects. I really do not understand this other than they have too many pupils to focus on individuals & subjects!
The cafeteria is way too small for the number if students, and alarmingly they had to take an extra 20 children I to this years 7 because LEA told them to!! They had to creat a new class, they said they had no say in the matter & that may continue- how big can the school get? The teacher at ACA says she sits in every appeal & fights to keep the intake at 169 & wins.
ACA all the way for me, p,us my dd said as soon as she walked into ACA she belonged.
Now just the logistics of getting there & back
