I'm a bit suspicious of private education. There is a lot of muttering from a few schools that they remove pupils from exams that they think they will get a low grade or fail in, in order to boost the overall pass mark. The educational standards in some are obviously higher in Scotland (Glenalmond etc.) but its not agiven. Plus the methods they employ to 'encourage' higher standards don't sit well with me.
Therefore I would send my child to the local state school. Decent education in most and no money to pay.
