Just to add a little bit -
-in the past the hall seats have been allocated first & the smaller classroom seats at the end.....
-there will be lots of 6th formers on hand to assist - they are there to try to make the boys feel more relaxed (as well as runing errends etc)so DS should ask them if he has any questions. Some of them this year are quite big but very friendly!
- there is limited parking in nearby streets/10 minute walk from town car parks if you choose to arrive early for collection & then wait 'on foot' rather than park in the car park, where it can be little bit 'hectic'
- toilets available during snack break
- suggestion from 3x experience is to have a treat planned for all the family for afterwards to celebrate having got through it
- also, wouldn't ask DS about the papers in detail afterwards- dont think I know any parents who got a good idea of child's ranking from this!!
Best wishes to everyone for the big day
