Many thanks for that. We are visiting NHEHS again on Thursday, there is a tour for everyone holding an offer. It's a great opportunity to see the school in action. When we went to the open evening last year it was very crowded and hectic.
We don't have any other private schools on our list, we are waiting to hear where she's got a place on 3rd March. She passed at four Grammar schools but all of them are quite far from Ealing (the nearest is St Bernard's in Slough), so the idea that she could walk to NHEHS it is very tempting:).
When we hear from them next Monday 3rd March we will only have one day to decide as the deadline for confirming the place at NHEHS is 5th March by noon.
Nerve cracking, but we are all in the same boat, will survive
