85% of the 227 students in Y9 at DAO will do Triple Science.
Halving the amount of girls allowed to do it at WGGS surely cannot be because they are not capable of doing it.
The two schools are closely related in intake, even more so now that they are using the same CEM paper to determine intake.
Do you think this is the Science Department pushing this through or the new Head? DG
I don't know if the new head can make these decisions before even being in post. It seems unlikely.
The timing of this is tactical, and means that parents will not have the opportunity to challenge the decision. Sets will be allocated on Monday or Tuesday and school closes for the holidays on Wednesday. Once school is back in session for the new year the girls will be in their new sets and on the relevant syllabuses. So any parents waiting to see how their daughters have fared before protesting would have left it too late.
