Yes- I'm glad I knew timings were tight DD was prepared. She said, with supreme authority, that they had obviously not worked out the timing for the maths section very well! Lots of long div, long multiplication. She also said the first five questions were hard and she had to guesstimate a bit, but didn't panic and rest was straightforward. Who knows? But Townley were really welcoming- I was so impressed by them. Children were allowed into a hall as soon as they arrived with jolly PowerPoint presentation to distract nerves and headmaster wandering around chatting to them. Very different from the DG glum queues!
Very impressed with Townley also. The Head, teachers and students were very friendly. My DD would prefer to go to a mixed school but am now considering Townley.
