Just wondering firstly how many girls sat both tests and what is their likely first choice going to be and secondly if anyone has any views on which school they prefer and why? We are in catchment for Chelmsford but closer to Colchester and unsure which to put as first choice!
My dd sat both tests and has a chance at a place at either CCHS or WHSG. I don't know which we will put first, still trying to make that decision.
We are in catchment for Chelmsford and it's closer than WHSG but the bus to WHSG goes from very close to my house so it probably makes the overall journey about 30 mins per day longer if dd goes to WHSG rather than CCHS.
We went to look at Colchester and my dd really liked it. If we lived closer to Colchester, it would be my first choice. They are higher up the league tables for A level and GCSE results than CCHS and have been for a good few years. The only down side to ColCHS in my opinion was that the school seemed a bit run down compared to CCHS. CCHS seemed to have much better facilities but we really liked the feel of ColCHS and if we didn't live too far from it, it would most definitely have been our first choice.
I don't know if that helps you at all!
If anyone is in a position to help me in trying to decide between CCHS and WHSG, then please do!
