Just want a bit of realistic advice on Sutton girls and Handsworth....we want to put one of them as 2nd choice...we live 3.2 miles from Sutton girls and it takes about 20 mins. to reach there...whereas for Handsworth it is 4.3 miles but it takes about 45 to50 mins. to reach there.. so distance wise Sutton is the best...now,coming to GCSE and A level performance...we heard that Handsworth is much better ...so if someone can give advice ...that wud be helpful......Thanks
Don't take anybody's word for it DYOR. The academic results are on each schools website.When you look at the results bear in mind there are more girls at SCGSG than KE Handsworth with a slightly greater range of abilities at SCGSG in the results.This position is changing at KE Handsworth with the pupil premium children but these children have not yet taken any GCSE's or A levels.These results also change from year to year.I couldn't say which is better on this basis.Decide on what suits you and your child and what is the best fit for your child.There is much more to a school than academics.
Good Luck on your choice.
