The feedback is excellent and the headmistress very well respected. This obviously helps as it means applications are bit more spread out. However, to counter that, since we had children, the number of families living (and staying) in the area has hugely increased which does put more pressure on school places. Also, are you aware that the headmistress at Cathedral is retiring next year which potentially has a significant impact?
