Well the Colyton 11+ was on Saturday. For the information of anyone who might look at this posting in the future, the English paper didn't include a comprehension this year. There were just two (compulsory) bits of extended writing. One was a letter to a penfriend; the other was an essay on a topic along the lines of "Something that went better than I had expected". (I'm pleased to say the latter seems to have applied to DD's 11+ experience...). Now just to wait for January.
I shall keep my fingers crossed for your daughter. My son is loving every minute of Colyton and I hope your daughter will be joining him there in September.
