Does anyone have experience with a DD who absolutely refuses to move school after getting a marvellous offer at a new school? The problem is that her current school continues onto 6th form so there there is no requirement to leave.

Is the new school your choice, or hers?

If there are reasons to move have you discussed it with your daughter and sold her on the reasons for changing?

The older the child is, the more parents reluctantly have to listen and take heed of the childs wishes.

Definitely my choice, but a huge opportunity. Her choice is to stay where she is.

She is 11 going into year 7, the school is SPGS, and travel times for both schools are short and roughly the same.

Me too and there are very few schools I would chose over St Paul's Girls.

Why doesn't she want to change? Is something about the new school worrying her? Maybe she's heard something in the playground that's put her off?

Definitely worth finding out why she won't change - and then try to talk her round :lol:

The struggle goes on...this parent doesn't seem to be in charge. Her arguments are that SPGS is not a "fun" school and doesn't do enough sport.
