Hi, college applications loom, preferred option is IB at Richmond College but worried about talk of cuts/closures, anyone have any useful experience on either of these colleges or the IB in particular?

Dd went to Esher, ds went to Richmond. Esher was a bit of a journey but generally I would say it was definitely better, both academically and in terms of pastoral care.

Richmond isn't closing - but it is likely to reduce in size from 2014 because the Richmond schools are opening 6th forms.

Thank you. He has chosen IB at Richmond, bit concerned as they have just had a slightly negative Ofsted but hoping the IB department is protected from any cuts to college as a whole.
