The forum in Bromley has been quiet for a while so I thought to stir up the things.
KEY DATES FOR YEAR 7 ENTRY IN SEPTEMBER 2014:New Year 7 Induction Evening:
Wednesday 25th June 2014 Above note is just to grab your attention .
I am actually planning to compile some stats from existing parents (whose children made it into top 120 or are in the waiting). This could be useful to the new parents who are sometimes not sure on what's required in terms of prep. All data required is quite generic i.e. no personal info used.

Feel free to suggest any new pointers but I don't want to make it too cumbersome. May I request all the proud parents of future Olavians to please pm me
with data on the above pointers? It will take 2 minute but I'm sure would be useful when you see the bell curve. Kindly support.
