North London, who knows. For now it looks like I'll take her the Steiner way because that's something I'm familiar with. I like the way they approach education, play and development. I'm not sure after secondary school, I might very well want her to go to a grammar school (my brother went to a very good one of these) but I just started my research project and I'm tired from my daughter not sleeping and I'm not thinking clearly. So forgive me if this was completely unreadable.
To sum up: I don't think state school is bad, I'm sure there are plenty of good ones. And if we move to Cornwall, please send me a list of good schools you know!
(I also want to add that my mother, my sister, two of my aunts and one cousin are teachers. In state schools.)My darling Roo, March 2013 & Little Bunny (a girl!) due 9th of February 2014

We happen to live near some amazing public schools right now so if we stay in the area, we will send our children to public schools/ magnet schools depending on their interests. I am definitely open to private if that is the better academic option for our kids wherever we end up. My husband had a bad experience at a private Christian school -limited classes, teachers weren't always hired because they knew their subjects well, very clicky and small student group, not a lot of extracurricular options and on and on, so academics, diversity, and opportunities are huge priorities for us.Mama to my dear little bear <3
