What is St Margaret's like? Is it easier to get into than North London Collegiate, Habs and HBS?
Our daughter got a place in HABS and St Margarets, my daughter has changed completely since going to HABs ( we made the wrong choice for our daughter) academically she is fine, but her personality has changed. She is no longer our bright ,bubbly happy child, but withdrawn andstressed. Her best friend went to St Margarets, and academically she is doing well, but her parents and her new friends state that the Pastoral care is excellant. We are trying to see if St Margarets will take your daughter in year 8, despite us rejecting them the first time round.
This is our experience.
I would advise you to look at all the schools, and see what suits your child ,which is what I wish we did.
