Hi everyone, this is my first post after lurking here for some time
Having done a fair bit of research we've more or less settled on Carshalton as good location to live. We really like the Village and it works well for me to commute into central London. We currently have a DS in primary school and a little one on the way. Our plan is to move close to the start of the 11+ process (although DS will continue at his school till secondary school). We're pretty clued up on the grammars (Wilson's, WCGS & Sutton) and how hard they are to get into but we're hopeful that DS could be fortunate
. However my main questions are,
1. what are the state school alternatives to Grammars in the event that he was not successful.
2. Is anybody familar with the local primary school options for our soon-to-be arrival. Is All Saints any good? Views from any parents of current or former pupils would be really helpful.
3. How does All Saints compare to barrow Hedges or the other schools in the area? Do they all have small catchment areas?
4. Do any of the local primary schools help with getting the children ready for 11+ examinations?
Sorry there are a fair few questions but grateful for any replies.
