What seems like a simple question "Is Spalding High School the best place for my daughter?" - is in fact becoming such a complicated question and visiting the school has not reassured me at all. Whilst I crave the quality of teaching and the nicer demographic of peers at school- the actual school itself and feel we got going there really put us off. The attitude was very much one of assumption that we would want to go there as they were the best. We came away having been escorted round the school by a year 7 girl who had only been there three weeks herself so albeit very polite, wasn't able to answer any question about the school that extended beyond the canteen and getting around the school. We came away having no time to speak with any teachers or support staff, and they werent even giving out a prospectus. It seems that they don't want to waste their time on new students unless they know you're actually going there. Which to me I have found really slightly arrogant, irritating and off putting.
I guess I am wondering, is the best school on paper actually the best place for my child?
(I am still letting her do the test as really all the preparation is all good for her anyway, she has to do her best no matter what school she goes to)
Anyone have a child at the school? want some honest feedback about the school really.
