No distractions but a whole lot of hormonal b*tching, with no male "common sense" to temper it! Having gone to an all girls school, I always vowed that if I had girls (I don't!) I would not do that to them. Nothing I have seen locally would change my mind!

It depends on the individual girl. I would have hated all girls, but DD definitely wanted it and loves it.

I know a couple who really wanted it too but now they have it, have had a really tough time and actually hate it. As I said, talking locally to me.

Girl's schools certainly do a lot better at getting girls doing Physics at A-level - the national picture is dismal with only 20% girls taking Physics A-level for the last 20 years :(

Even those schools that claim they have a high rate of STEM subject take up by girls often have girls choosing Biology and, to a lesser extent, Chemistry but not Physics.

This saddens me as without Physics many STEM careers are closed to girls/women e.g. Engineering, which is ~85% male at Universities in the UK.
