Could you share your information about Southend High for Girls ? Maybe parent whose child goes there already. I am not sure if my daughter can get Westcliff High which would be my preference but trying to figure out other options. We are OOC. Thank you.

Can someone also share how many OOC seats available in SHSG?

The admission document is confusing and does not state the number. I tried calling the school few times but nobody picking up the phone.

Doesn't it give the percentage/ proportion available to IC applicants? You can work out the number from that and the PAN (180, unless it has changed this year).

Finally managed to speak with them. Yes, it is 20% of 180 so roughly 30-36 only depending on number of candidates on other categories.

Did anyone ask on Monday, morning, how many girls in the priority are scored 303 or above?

Deputy head said they didn't have that information.

First of all, congratulations for all your daughter's efforts and your support to her throughout 11+ preparation. It is very unfair for a 10 year old to go through this pressure and for parents likewise.

My daughter is in Southend Year 10. After visiting both schools, she liked Southend. All of us liked the relaxing school environment at Southend high.
She is very pleased about her decision and would like to do her A levels from there only. The best things for her is, Southend offers Statistics as an extra GCSE on top of all other subjects. She did her GCSE at year 9 itself and very pleased with the outcome. Teachers are very supportive.

Westcliff may have other options available that are more appealing to you.

It is a personal choice really. Both schools are good. It is children who make the difference. My daughter sometimes attends some inter school competitions and mentioned that "Westcliff children are always in pressure to do more and more where as we (in her words) just take it easy". It does not mean they do any less. Both school children gets happiness in what they do I think.

Both schools offered parents (and children I think) to visit over last few days. I hope you have visited both of them to make an informed decision.

Best of luck.
