Re: Schools

My lad is in his last year at Byrchall and has found it OK. he has just done 4 of his GCSEs in his fourth year and I think this has had an adverse effect on his grades.

I don't know if they do this at Cansfield or Edmund Arrowsmith's but I think he would hhave done better if they had left it another year.

Re: Schools

My cnildren left school some years ago. They attended Cansfield which at that time did not have the best of reputations. However ,over the past 4/5 years, the school has shown big improvements and (if memory serves me correctly)have been getting very good Ofsted reports -something to ask the schools about.
