Hello, I am new to the forum
and would like to ask what you think of Bancrofts School.
We went with our eldest daughter to have a look this past Saturday. The grounds were beautiful. The sports facilities fantastic. The girl who showed us around was sweet and well spoken. The boys demonstrating in the science labs were sparky and keen. The head was straightforward and respectable. So far all so good.
But, as we looked closer we realised that a great number of the children were focussed on maths/science. Which isn't a bad thing at all, but we wondered if Arts and Humanities are second best at Bancrofts. The Art studios were a little too clean
. The passion all seemed to lie in getting into medical school or the city. Not bad goals, but maybe not our daughter's strong suits.
So, I guess what I am wondering is whether second best arts and humanities at Bancrofts is still better than the more balanced offerings at our other two local schools Chigwell and Forest.
