Me and Mrs Pushy Dad needs some advice from those parents who have kids at either school.
STAHS was originally intended to be Plan B, just in case we didn't get Stags - we are outside Stags proximity area so it was hit or miss with regards to whether we would win one of the lottery places.
We didn't fancy our chances but on Wednesday we found out that we had been allocated a place at Stags. I can tell you that we were a family of happy bunnies/stags that evening.
Things got complicated the next morning when we got a scholarship offer from STAHS. Plan B is now on the verge of becoming Plan A, what with the scholarship offer making a private education (slightly) more affordable.
Even with a scholarship we still need to finance 70% of the fees. Her brother is at Habs Boys so you can imagine what the state of our finances looks like
If your daughter is at STAGS and she had the opportunity to go to STAHS, would you want her to swap schools?
If your daughter is at STAHS, what do you feel that the school offer that STAGS doesn't?
GCSE results is not a factor since I am assuming that both schools have excellent teachers and that the difference in ranking is because one is 100% selective.
