This may not be the right forum for discussing the merits of individual schools but im looking for advice about secondary schools in H&F and Kensington. I live in Brook Green and seem to be surrounded by Academies; Hammersmith, Holland park and the West London Free School, which ideally i would like to avoid. of course those are the schools that enjoy the new buildings and facilities. Does anyone have experience of Pheonix or Fulham Cross? Im not religous, so cannot consider the faith schools.
I was raised in canada, where, at that time we all went to the local school. Private schools were very rare, but I understand they are on the increase. I am unfamiliar with the whole English system, i.e. Grammar vs Comprehensive and find it difficult to make a judgement as to what is best based on my lack of experience in this school system.
