DC would definitely say Bond is harder :lol:

I would say CGP are clearer in the question what they want in the answer.

We've not done the familiarisation materials as yet, I had a quick look at the format to check that we've been heading in vaguely the right direction but that's it so far. It looked like the materials could make some kind of a practice test, so we may do it that way closer to the time.

I hope everyone is doing well; we're still enjoying our break!

Bit odd to think they should have sat it today. DC has a stinking cold from being back at school so actually thankful!

So from what I can tell

STRS - book a tour and virtual
Crypt - virtual
Ribston - virtual
DRHS - book a tour
SHS - Bookable Q&A with head. Virtual tour
Marling - TBC
Pates - virtual

Henley Bank and Churchdown are the only comps (in Gloucester) doing tours I think?

I've not looked at the boys schools, but SHS have a virtual event in October.

Chosen Hill and Barnwood Park are also virtual events.

Holmleigh Park can arrange for tours.

I'm just frustrated that some of the virtual events are in school time and don't mention that they're going to be recorded. It feels odd to take DD out of school for a virtual event!

I just want this over now! DD and I are counting down the days to be rid of the test and then rid of the application process :roll:

Huh my reply disappeared. I’ve edited my earlier response for SHS.

Marling have released small group tour slots today. Only available to y6, I presume those who have registered to take the test there or share results with them.

Gloucester Academy have an open evening on 30th September, and several open mornings. Recently taken over by the same academy chain as Holmleigh Park and Henley Bank.

That said, I’ve submitted the CAF already, seems little point in waiting as we looked around DRHS and Ribston at this time last year.
