Hello 👋

Just curious if anyone here knows what other Secondary Schools are good in this area?
We are moving from overseas and struggling to find accommodation in the exact catchment for The Charter School. Does anyone have ideas on other great Secondary Schools in the wider area ? 😁😁

There are many good secondary schools in the area. The two Charters are just two schools and they certainly have their weaknesses! If you have a girl, Harris Girls is very much on the way up and I think they have a wonderful, holistic approach. Harris Boys has got a very good reputation. Further afield, St. Thomas the Apostle is an outstanding school although boys only... Deptford Green has a great deal of promise as well.

Are you looking at secondary schools for future admission starting at year 7 (age 11), or to join an existing year group?
If the latter, you could move next door to your preferred school and still not get a place, as you will be dependent on someone leaving the school to get a place if that school is at its maximum capacity.
Last year I helped a friend try to find a school place for a year 8 girl and none of the Southwark schools could help. She ended up at Haberdashers - a much sought-after Lewisham school that just happened to have an in year vacancy.
If you are looking at Year 10, I would reckon Kingsdale would be a good bet as quite a large number of students leave to join the Brit School, which only starts at age 14.
