Really liked it! The students and teachers were so pleasant to talk to, I actually enjoyed myself. Matches so well with dd1 a interests. In a way I'm glad she didn't go, I think it would have put her off NLCS - entrance test today (4x1 hour exams in her subjects!).
Now how to break it to her that wggc have a uniform in sixth... She's not clothes oriented but it's more about being regarded as very juvenile or immature, I think. In fact she rarely bothers to change out of her (very similar) uniform as it is comfy and practical. Hopefully she will regard it as the minor detail in a bigger picture.
We will just apply to all the schools anyway and cross bridges later I guess.
Will your DD have a chance to look at Watford Girls' herself in the meantime? The application forms for our local sixth forms are very much coming from the young person him/herself and I wouldn't have considered DS1 'sending himself' (okay,I actually did fill in most of the forms, or he would never have gone anywhere, even stayed where he was
) to a school he hadn't seen, in an unfamiliar town.
