DD1 started at St Albans High School
this year and DD2 is hoping to sit next year, so we wont be there tomorrow.
DD1 is still so excited about the school and is loving every second - from the coach journey in, Maths, Latin, Cookery, right through to Lacrosse in the freezing cold
It was the best decision ever for or DD1.
DD2 has her fingers and toes crossed in hope
Good luck for tomorrrow.Cinnamon,
Only 50 places is not as daunting as it first sounds. Indie schools that have a junior prep school intake at 4 or 7 years old will have, in addition, around another 50 or so places offered "internally" to those children at 11+. Schools like St Albans, Habs, St Helens & South Hampstead are all in this position.
Remember that it's the same batch of external girls (see Daogroupie's post above) who are sitting for the same schools - at the end of the day they can only choose 1 school. Indies therefore generally "over offer" to say the top 80 -100 candidates, to ensure they get take-up of the 50 available places - as they know many children will have multiple offers to choose from. So relatively speaking, not as daunting as it first sounds.
