Sorry if this post is a bit Mumsnetty for this site, but: we're applying for school admissions for our son this January and would welcome any advice on pros and cons of local schools.
We live roughly halfway between Stroud Green School and Duncombe. Stroud Green is getting a new head (Cal Shaw from Chestnuts in Haringey) which in theory should make a difference. Duncombe seem to have their act together. But it's difficult to know from the outside.
So if anyone has experience of either or both and how they compare, we'd be very grateful for your insights, thanks!
