Hi Melx, Sally-Anne.
My daughter is doing great at SGHS, North Yorkshire.
She has been set for a few subjects so far and is in top sets for all for now!
She has lost touch with her friends from primary accept from a best friend who was the only other girl to pass the eleven plus from her school and now goes to the same Grammar.
She has made lots of friends at Grammar and when it was her birthday in October after only a few weeks at school she got about 20 bithday cards and lots of pressies!!!
Glad to hear that your kids are ok.
Sally-Anne it must be hard, my younger daughter wouldn't do the 11 plus this year and we have put a "very good" not so near comp as her first choice, we think she wants to get out of big sis's shadow lol!
I think she will equally shine at her chosen school(fingers crossed for a place on allocation day) so I can understand if you end up not bothering to try for the 12+ as he sounds to be excelling at his school now.
All the best Sally whatever path you choose.
