Well I think AGGS is the BEES KNEES you must send your DD's there!!
Ha ha can you see my tactic there, I needs Loreto to get right down to little old DD hanging on in there at cat 473
Right my pennies worth, considering my DD shall probably end up at neither. I don't know the schools exceptionally well but can only talk of what I think and the short time I have had any dealings with them....Communication at Loreto I have found exceptional, at AGGS not so. Scores speak for themselves and that is where AGGS possibly come out on top! Girls friendly at both schools, pastoral side (which is important to me) at first glance may come out on top at Loreto. Again is what works for your DD, I do think they are both great schools and would probably be more than happy sending my DD to either.
Have to say in the last since out disappointing AGGS result I have had people (possibly to make me feel better) say this that and the other about AGGS and I do take on board everyone's veiw. But ultimately only YOU can make the decision and only You and your DD shall know which school is right.
Edited to say: I think homework pays a very BIG part at AGGS, I know of a couple of girls who are up late into the night doing the daily homework
