Re: HBS ALLOCATIONS MARCH 2024

Leaving home at 640am and not returning until 530pm should not be the choice for a dd of any family. No school is worth this especially as there would be no opportunity to participate in after school activities. Westminster and St Pauls Girls mandate a journey of less than an hour. More schools shou...

Re: DAO ALLOCATIONS MARCH 2024

Music has not changed, it was already on !2 but a nine rank leap to 107 in the academic ranks is quite something. That is almost 14% of the places. The student I know has been offered HBS so their place is one of these 9. I wonder if there was anyone who turned an offer down and decided to stay with...

Re: Catchment for Dame Alice Ownes eleven plus

There are only 22 distance places at DAO so I would recommend that you move into the Latymer catchment area as they have 192 places. You will however actually have to sit the academic exam. If you choose carefully you can be in catchment area for both DAO and Latymer. Southgate is an example of an a...

Re: DAO ALLOCATIONS MARCH 2024

There are only 65 academic places and 10 music places available at DAO so it is possible that as yet no places have been handed back. Compare this to 192 places at QE and 104 at HBS and 192 at Latymer. There is no penalty for holding a state school place and a private school place and no way for the...

Re: HBS ALLOCATIONS MARCH 2024

A lot happens in the lives of families between end of October and start of March. Some will have originally planned to move to go to HBS but may have now decided not to uproot the whole family but instead go for a more local option. 17 places out of 104 being turned down is a lot but it reflects tha...

Re: HBS ALLOCATIONS MARCH 2024

HBS may think they have offered places to the top 17 on the waiting list but I know of at least one family in the top 17 that have not received any information at all about an offer. Hopefully this is because of Easter and the offer will be appearing on Tuesday morning by which time it will be May, ...

Re: QE ALLOCATIONS MARCH 2024

I would be surprised to hear that QE or any school that offers 11 plus selection would send out this information. They are required to provide it if asked for it but I am not aware of any school that proactively sends it. It is however fascinating and lovely for those who did well to find out exactl...

Re: HBS ALLOCATIONS MARCH 2024

This is a very interesting thread. Thank for all this excellent data.

There are a lot of families at Highgate on full bursaries so although there are wealthy families there is also a good mix,

50% more choice at A level is indeed very key.

Re: DAO ALLOCATIONS MARCH 2024

In the five months since parents applied for state schools on 31st October many families have received very attractive offers from private schools. There will be DC with offers from INDIES etc Some of those who have been offered DAO places will be taking those private school offers so their slots wi...
