Hi, thanks for your replies, I'm not aware of any heads signing forms saying they won't coach children, especially since i found out that at least two schools, less than 1.5 miles away, coach their children after school and the children get to sit the exams in their own hall amongst their friends, as opposed to my children having to attend the grammar school we put as 1st choice to sit them.(Alongside kids being sick and fainting my daughter tells me). Anyway I've now downloaded some papers and i'll test my son. He's quite competitive so anything his sister can do he can do better
If not we were quite impressed at the open evening for Woodchurch High last night, at least we're not looking at a sink school for 2nd choice
Good Luck with your son Frantic.
