We recently moved to Clapham and dd been very lucky to be offered to start year 2 in Sept with Thomas's Clapham and Newton Prep!
We like both schools and currently leaning towards Thomas's due to distance/commune (seems safer for dd to cycle to Thomas's than NP, from Clapham). We heard NP school run in the morning is a total nightmare.
However, from reading previous threads, we see some daunting comments about Thomas's being "Pushy", "Alpha Boys", "manage students out"etc... Are these true? We really really wish to speak to some current Thomas's parents (especially whom with daughters!)
Our dd is a "normal" child, she's not shy nor alpha, academically she's usually in the middle bunch, just a normal little girl, she's been in a similar prep (in size) in north London since reception year.
Thank you for reading this and thank you in advance for your kind advice!
