Why wouldn’t you?
Off the top of my head I think it’s £1200 a term at Arnold, if you can get it for free or the fees loaned, then yes go for it!

Private schools can charge large amounts of money for a reason!!

It’s not guaranteed, but worth pursuing. As it’s x2

A loving home and a good education are the two most important things you can give a child.

Sadly a lot of kids in Blackpool get neither.

It was about that 25 years ago when I was there. I’d be amazed if it was that price now.

As someone who doesn’t have kids and doesn’t plan to this is very easy for me to say...

I fucking hated school but if I was sending my kids off, I’d absolutely do everything I could to give them a private education. I was learning things in my first year at Arnold that my mates at Ansdell High didn’t learn until they were doing GCSEs. Don’t get me wrong, I had some shit teachers - and they got sacked.

I’m not arsed about a class war debate - the level of education is simply better because the schools are scrutinised by customers and the league tables show this to be the case.

I reckon my average class size was 25.

Except GCSE Latin - there were 2 of us.
