I am spinning my wheels a bit (understatement) and a friend, who is probably utterly bored of the topic, suggested I ask nappy valley for help.
We are in a very fortunate position that my son has been accepted to the above three schools but we are having a tough time picking which one to send him to. From a league table perspective, Whitgift and Trinity are seen as being “more successful” than Emanuel but I’m well aware Emanuel is on the up and know there is more to a school than where it sits in the league tables. The coed vs boys-only element is of no concern personally. I suppose I am struggling to get my head around the travel from Balham to Croydon BUT don’t want to pick Emanuel simply because it’s local. I have a little info re the commuting options but have heard rumours of possible car pooling? Or chaperoning? Can anyone shed any light? I also have more general info on Whitgift but less on Emanuel and even more so, Trinity. Any first-hand experience or help anyone can provide re any of the schools would be much appreciated!
