Secondary schools in South East London

I have daughter in year 5 and a few folk said that it’s good to have a look around the schools this year as various open days clash and also if you visit over a couple of years you can see whether it is consistent.

Having now visited 8 schools I thought it would be probably be good to write down a few of my impressions. So the next few posts will be on that. I shall link them as I post.

So what’s an open day about? For most visitors it is about getting a ‘feel’ for the place. It’s a visit that tries to glean what’s behind all the results and ofsted reports. It’s that minuscule chance to try and get a sense of the space and whether your child is going to grow in this space and have some good times here. It’s also a good chance to see what the head teacher is like because that is key in how a school functions on a day to day basis.

Obviously what I write is biased from what I’ve seen in that short time but that’s what you get and decisions are made based on the bits we get to see.
