I assume some people must have missed the furore around this issue!! It was quite well reported - nothing personal (I believe the Sevenoaks school got caught particularly badly).

The Tiffin Girls School has been very good during the lock down. My guess, and just a guess, is that areas that still have the 11+ and many grammar schools (Kent etc) would see a greater variation in lock down delivery.

Nevertheless we are now considering private for 6th form. Don't want to take any chances over the next few years.

Yes, it has changed my outlook.

Earlier I was planning to move house to be inside a catchment area. However, in lockdown my whole family realised that we enjoyed our large home (we have no grammar schools where we live) + big garden + open space nearby so dropped the idea of moving house altogether. With my budget I could only afford a smaller house in a good school catchment area.

My DD will still sit for super selective schools but I accepted not getting thru any such school is not end of the world.

I am also relieved that I can WFH and even after pandemic ends, it is unlikely that I'll commute to London daily 5 days a week. My employer adopted a hybrid working approach and in future if I change jobs, I shall make sure it allows 3 days WFH minimum even if that means taking a salary cut.

The pandemic demonstrated me the art of possible.
