Probably SEB but it's "crack" mateMy wife is a practicing Catholic from a big Catholic family up in Scotland. She went to a Catholic school and wants the same for our son.
Also, as someone else has pointed out, the choice of non-catholic schools in Sunderland is actually shocking. We're both teachers and know the craic with schools, hence why we had him 'baptised' Catholic. It really is a no brainer. So i don't think practicing Catholics should take too much offence to that at all.
I'm not Catholic myself but my wife is. I think when you look at the choice of non-catholic schools in Sunderland it really is a no brainer.
