Hello,

I would appreciate some advice re which high schools to look at for my DS. He plays cricket at county level and has a passion for athletics. I would like a place which focuses on pastoral care and can boost self esteem and confidence and pushes children academically whilst not being too pressured. Does such a place exist?!

I'm based in the Dunstable area and would prefer a commute of 45 minutes max.

Any advice or suggestion would be most appreciated :)

It might be a bit far anyway, but Bedford School gave us the lovely (Sir) Alastair Cook, so must have something going for it? :).

(Yes, I am an Essex CCC supporter :lol: ).

Lots of great places.

St Albans would be my top pick.

All the students I know there love it and the parents are really happy with it too. DG

Hello,

Any ideas what sort of percentages across English and Maths are needed for St Albans?


Thank you

Like most schools they operate a first past the post system so the standard required varies according to the standard of the cohort.

3 years ago their rejection letter stated the following: "Your score would have secured you a place last year but we had more applicants this year so we are unable to offer you a place." DG

Many thank for your suggestions ToadMum and DG :)

I have also been recommended Princess Helena College, which I'm currently researching.
