Arghhh... I don't know why I am so nervous. I want to take a list of questions but that would seem silly, wouldn't it!?

Taking a list is a very good idea. When my godson when to look at a new school he was primed to ask a question as well.

I asked loads of questions, in the end they almost had to ask me to leave as we had over run of allocated half hour visit :oops:

This is your childs future happiness on the line - you owe it to you both to ensure you trust these people to look after your most precious thing, I would go for the list approach, at least you won't forget anything, you can always whittle it down a bit if you feel it goes on bit :lol:

It went really well. The Headmistress was LOVELY - really easy to talk to. I remembered everything because she was so nice and it was a lovely school and I hope J can go there and I won't score any points for composition! He he

Glad it went well... definitely good to ask questions!

We don't really get a choice of place for J... he'll start next year at the local catchment school. If we do choose a different one then we'd need to transport him there ourselves anyway, so on that point it doesn't make sense.

When does your J start?

Really nice school, within walking distance - although I will probably have to drive most days because then I have to go on to work - which is about 2 miles on from the school.

My J starts in Sept 08, yours? :drunken:
