We were there too. Good vibe.
We liked Mr Sentence (but the previous headmaster especially impressed us).
We did look around and wonder which fellow forum members were around. We feel lucky that DS has several friends going with him. The uniform prices are not too shocking so that was not so bad.
Had a look out back, the new building looks wonderful and after a few discussions with his Form Tutor DS started to take to her, I liked her so we are looking good!
Roll on tomorrow. Good luck everyone.
DS is one of two going from his school and they have been put into separate forms. I did query it, but was told with over 50 feeder schools and them needing to get a similar gender split, that's how it is. They're both ok about it thankfully - I'm sure that they will have made a load a new friends after today anyway.
Hope it goes well for everyone today
