Have you been the open evenings of both schools? What was your feel?

Have you seen the A level and GCSE results of these 2 schools? How much difference do you make out?

Which school is near to your home?

Could I ask if it is you or your daughter who is interested in science? Ten years old is very young to know. I don't know the schools but I imagine both are excellent for science and many other subjects. And of course, all the science teachers could change jobs over the next 7 or 8 years.

If you can't see any difference, then one must assume that that year's cohort of year 11s at both schools either did equally well overall, or equally badly?

Probably the former?

Which tells you that...?

What it would tell me is that a bunch of clever girls at two similarly academically selective schools did well in their GCSEs. So no big surprise, really?

If one of the schools is easier to get to than the other, then unless your DD really hates it when she visits, I would go with that one, personally :) .

If you live near Wally Girls, then it must be the quickest relocation seen in decades. :wink:

And in that case, I would recommend Wally Girls.
