St James: fantastic school - an oasis in London which cares about the child and not exam results although it does very well and has introduced IGCSE's for rigour - pastoral care second to none.
Notting Hill - pressurised and snobby and if your child doesn't make the grade then they get kicked out! Lots of parents who privately tutor whilst at this school because "everyone" does it!
Latymer - will kick you out if your GCSE's aren't up to scratch and many parents say there is quite a bit of bullying here. Prep school is great though. Not good for the sensitive or shy.
Harrodian - Excellent pastoral care and caters for the individual and quirky kids.
Arts Ed - only for kids with ambition, drive, confidence and competitive, and true talent and/or beauty or it could seriously affect their self-esteem being surrounded by such. Still very good academic results considering its slant towards the dramatic arts.
