Ive lived in Adelaide for many years now, but all my education 'history' is in the UK. My husband is an Aussie and was educated in the private catholic system.
This has made choosing a school for our son quite difficult as we have decided we don't want him to go to a catholic school and we just don't know anyone who sends their kids to our local schools.
We have enrolled him at Westminster to start at the prep school in 2011 - mainly because we were very impressed when we did the tour and have heard good things about it, also it is close to where we live. However, I feel that even though he isn't due to start for a few years we have left our application too late and there is a high chance he won't get in (we won't find out until next year or the year after!!!!!). If he doesn't get in, he'll then go to either Clapham Primary or Colonel Light Gardens Primary. So, after a long ramble, my questions are:
1. Did anyone here send their child to Westminster School (starting in Prep), and if so how early did you enrol them to secure a place - and, are you happy with the school?
2. Does anyone know how good/bad Clapham or CLG primary are?
Thanks - it seems ages until he starts school as he's not even 3, but its amazing how it suddenly seems to become an important issue.
