W: Well, before we decide we're going to live in Enderby, we really ought to have a look at the schools. We want the children to have a good secondary education, so we'd better see what's available.
M: They gave me some information at the district office and I took notes. It appears there are five secondary schools in Enderby -- three state schools and two private.
W: I don't know if we want private schools, do we?
M: I don't think so, but we'll look at them anyway. There're Saint Mary's, that's a catholic school for girls and Carlton Abbey, that's a very old boys' boarding school, founded in 1672.
W: Are all the state schools co-educational?
M: Yes, it seems so.
W: I think little Keith is very good with his hands. We're to send him to a school with good vocational training -- carpentry, electronics, that's sort of thing.
M: In that case, we are best off at Enderby Comprehensive. I gather they have excellent workshops and instructors. But it says here the Donwell also has good facilities. Enderby High has a little, but they are mostly academic. No vocational training at all at Carlton Abbey or Saint Mary's.
W: What are the schools like academically? How many children go on to university every year?
M: Well, Enderby High is very good. And Carlton Abbey even better, 70% percent of their pupils go on to university. Donwell isn't so good. Only 8%. And Enderby Comprehensive in Saint Mary's not much more, about 10%.
W: Well, it seems like there is a broad selection of schools. But we have to find out more than statistics before we can decide.
