Silverflora - why would you only consider SPGS? I know several girls who are very happy at Godophin, Latymer Upper and Queensgate for example? I do know girls who go to SPGS and they vary between absolutely loving it and hating it. There is a thread on the Mumsnet website called St Pauls' Girls Scho...

As an atheist, the most useless O level (yes, I am old) I did was Religious Studies - memorising parts of the bible and learning about the early church. We had two particularly unpleasant teachers, one an out and out misogynist and the other was later convicted of assaulting little boys. Perhaps the...

Interesting idea.....what is your opinion on sibling places and banding? I live just to the west of central London and most "good" schools round here are faith schools who select on religious commitment with a few places for those living very close - which are of course expensive areas. I ...

Charter school lottery - our future? Hope not!

Interesting but rather frightening article from the BBC site about Charter schools in the USA, apparently being canvassed here...

Speaking as a Tiffin mum - it is a good school but believe me it is not the only good school around. I don't think the extra-curicula stuff is particularly unusual or outstanding, I know some comps that offer more. I think it is a fairly well rounded education but a lot of girls are interested in do...

I would also add that the nvr papers appear to be getting harder year on year and the practice papers are not necessarily a reliable indicator of performance on the day.

Re Tiffin. My daughter got an extra 5 mins, in each paper, she has a report from an ed psych. I think they also accept a letter from the school. If they have a statement of special needs they get an extra 10 mins. But seems unlikely in your case. Ring the admissions lady at the school they were extr...

The council have stated that they will make an application to the Schools Adjudicator to expand the proposed site. Tiffin believes this is an application to take some of their facilities. Frankly I think the council will say anything to push it through... My daughter will have left by then so it won...
