Son and daughter in law are moving to Notts area and trying to decide on schools for 4 year old daughter and 2 year old son.
Is Salterford House, Calverton having problems? Reduced numbers and looks tired. Also head and deputy of Notts Girls High both leaving. Why?

When you say Nottingham area - how far outside the city do you mean?

I hear the Eest Bridgford area is popular with families because of the schools, shops, cafes/restaurants etc.

West Bridgford!!!

Difficult to advise about schools as a new headteacher can turn a school round very quickly [and a bad one vice versa]. If you're looking at non private George Spencer has always been the one to go to and has never been anything other than excellent.

Hi marywillow1 Might be worth posting your query on the Nottinghamshire local forums (have linked) too in case anyone there can help?

Errr, is that the Nottingham local forum where the last reply on a thread was 28/3/14?

Ernehale Infant and Junior schools in Woodthorpe both retain the good reputation they have held for many years.
