Does anyone have any recent experiences of these schools at secondary level?
I am particularly interested in what they’re like in terms of:
How broad and forward thinking the curriculum is
Whether they are a fun and friendly place to be
Extra curricular activities
SEND support (ADHD)
and how much homework/how pushy it is there.
Also interested in any experiences of flexi boarding.
Any opinions gratefully received!

I'm sorry I have not personal experience of these schools. I have heard good things about Brentwood in terms of breadth of activities and being fun, along with bright DC doing well there academically. All of these schools will have a different ability intake to the grammars that they compete with for some DC, but from what I have seen (anecdotes not data) the grammar eligible DC who went to Brentwood did as well there as they would have elsewhere, and had a great time also. I have hear denoting about the other 2 schools, but am not from your area so that does not mean anything - just that I happen to know a couple of former Brentwood parents. I hope you get more feedback soon.
