My friend has a son in the lower school and he was in a single-sex school before that. Latymer is definitely not a Hot-Housing environment and the school is more relaxed since the introduction of girls. I wrote on a very early post that my hubby sees many work experience kids from habs, mts and latymer, and he has always been very complementary of the latymer kids. Within London we are surrounded by parents and schools who only focus on academics to the exclusion of everything else, but Latymer, I feel, is an oasis in within London. I'm sure your daughter will be very happy and I wish her the best of luck.
