My daughter passed for HSFG but we are also in catchment for Balcarras. Just interested in what others would do if you were in our position. Two weeks or so to decide and I'm not sure what to put as first choice on the form... :?

Balcarras. Hands down without a second thought.

Totally agree with Amber. Balcarras without any hesitation.

I have no personal experience if balcarras, but looking at results, and anectodal evidence it would be balcarras without much thought..
Why travel further for a school that isn’t actually any butter?

my DD got in to HSFG too and in catchment area of Balcarras. My son is already in Balcarras.

First :you need to ask (be realistic) if you and her can handle the travel time and it will cost you around £120/month for school bus.
Would she rather be with her peers or ok to make new friends ( to be honest from my experience peers in Balcarras are much more closer than grammar school
Will she be able to cope with her peers where everyone are equally ability or better.
Where will she be happy ?

My DD chose HSFG because she can see herself happy there. Good luck with your decision .They both are great school.
