Wow - thanks so very much all of you for giving me such honest opinions on both schools
My son is quite sporty, but not majorly so, loves playing his guitar, and is big into debating and public speaking. He loves a good discussion.
We live 15 minutes walking distance to St Albans boys, and Habs has a coach service that goes from practically the end of our road and takes about 25 minutes I think???
He has been at a mixed state primary and has a younger sister so has had/will continue to have exposure to the opposite sex on a regular basis.
Practically St Albans is better for us/him, but my/my DH hearts are with Habs, as you will all know so many boys sit the Habs exam so for him to get in makes us feel that maybe it is right for him???
I never imagined it would be so tough to choose. If I am completely honest with myself if Habs were walking distance there would really be no contest... argghhhh... Mx
