One of the most highly regarded schools in SE1 is The Cathedral School
of St Saviour Overie in Redcross St - it is a C of E school but also accepts a % of non denominational pupils and some out of area pupils.
We were anxious parents and although we live in SE16 went to look at the school for our now 7 year old son in 2001 and were very impressed. He didn't get offered a place and is now happily settled in a local school but the Cathedral school did call us at the beginning of Yr 1 to see whether we were still interested.
The deputy head of my son's current primary school has recently been appointed Head of Tower Bridge primary school if that's of interest.
We also have a two year old so will have to go through the whole process again in two years time!
