Secondary school choices in Hove

(2 Posts)

DD is currently in Y6 and we are completing her high school application. We have seen both Hove Park and Blatchington Mill, which are our catchment schools. I liked them both and struggling to choose tbh.

I just wondered if any of you lovely fellow Hove-ites had any experience of either school and any views on strengths/weaknesses of each.

Thanks in advance!

My eldest goes to blatch and my next will probably go to hove park.
I wouldn't have said that a few years ago but hove park has come on amazingly in the last few years.
Is great for IT and languages.
Blatch is ex grammar and has always been a good school.
Last year they got a 100% gcse coverage. Meaning that everyone got at least 1 gcse. Which is apparently pretty good.
They have great drama links and dance is on the curriculum which my eldest really loves.
Tbh they are both fab schools and I wouldn't be unhappy to get either.
Pacca is another thing all together.
