    Xavs is awesome, but then i'm biasd lol. What you have heard is a little skewed lool if you are willing to work the teachers will listen and help if you need/want it the ones that mess around itsnt most people just a small amount. The extra activites are pretty good as well, theres choir, creative writing, sports, debating etc.

    The only issue is that Xavs is very over subscribed as it is now so if you haven't already applied i'm not sure how much of a chance you will have of getting in. As for the grades it shouldn't be a problem as i had mostly B's with one A and 3 C's.

    Hope this helps.

    This is directly from the website;

    At A2 Level, out of over 1600 exams taken, there were only 7 fails, resulting in a pass rate of 99.6%, and almost half of all grades were A-B.


    Among the many highlights were:

    •100% pass rate in 34 subjects at A-Level
    •100% pass rate in all vocational BTECs
    •39 subjects above national averages
    •100% pass rate at Level 1 Foundation Course

    I just did a quick search on this, has anyone else by any chance got more information on Aquinas and/or Xaverian? I've got places for both but I'm unsure what I should do... I'm thinking of taking sciencey/art/music/english subject (I'm really indecisive)

    Which one did you go to in the end? Cos i'm thinking of going aquinas and was wondering if you did go there, what it's like. Most people in my school are either going to those two schools or cheadle and marple.
