Hi girls.... Are you girls?
I'll start the ball rolling: my DD is 10 already (old for the school year) and will be sitting The Slough consortium exam (and possibly the Bucks too though the only practical GS there would be Burnham as we are Slough based so I guess she could go on the train).
I just can't get over some of the crazy commutes that people seem to discuss on here: we looked around the Slough grammars in September to get an idea and in one, the girls who showed us around were from Southall, Reading and Twickenham
We're DIY'ing, with possibly one of those one week summer courses for a bit of exam technique/mock confidence. There are lots of kids at school who seem to be going to tuition centre type things and then discussing it +++ at school. DD is not finding this helpful!
I just want the whole process to be as painless as possible....
