My daughter has been offered a place at Newton Prep, we are very pleased as we liked the school from the word go. The structure, the headteacher, the ethos.. However, I’m getting cold feet maybe it’s the anxiety of having to take this step and move her as she is happy and comfortable where she is (She has the option to move to KG and the school is good enough).
My main concern is that she is a bit of a sensitive soul, will she get lost in such a big school as Newton? She is confident but when in large numbers she does shy away and happily let’s others lead.
I was wondering if anyone here could give me some feedback on Newton Prep and their experience, particularly if you have a sensitive child.
On a side note, Newton is also another 10 minutes walk away from our house (and not as nice commute). I know its minor in the scale of things but parents with older children told us to really consider whether this would be practical in the long run.
