We are very unhappy with our current primary (dcs are in Year 2 and 4) and are looking for an immediate change.
One possible choice is Mandeville. I know it has a bad reputation, but it is also an outstanding school and just turned into an academy.
Do anybody's dcs attend Mandeville? What is it like?

I have friends with dc there who are very happy with it.

I don't think it has a bad reputation now, although it certainly used to. I know it has a very mixed intake but personally I would view that favourably. Quite honestly you need to go and look round and talk to the Head.

Have you spoken to your children's current Head? Always a good idea first. Have you considered any other local schools?

Thanks for all your answers!
We have finally managed to solve the problems at our current school and don't think we need to change any more.

I am quite impressed with all the good things I have heard about Mandeville both online and offline!
