I know girls who go to Townley and DGGS. They are all happy. However, from where we are, DGGS is much easier to get to by train. I see the Townley girls having a complicated journey and the mothers have organised themselves to carpool. It seems that Townley is a bit hidden away, transport wise.
What did you think about both schools? Are your daughter's friends going to Townley?
I have not heard any issues about bullying or anything negative about DGGS, but I have read on this forum about behaviour issues and bullying at Townley.
My son goes to Dartford boys and says that lots of girls take the train too. Some of his primary school friends go to Townley and sometimes take the train to Dartford, loop back to Barnehurst and take a bus. It seems a bit cumbersome to me, but they don't seem to mind.
Anyway, do post on Kent to get more opinions. All I know is that DGGS is a really sought after school. Oh, you'll have the Dartford boys to worry about!
I hear some of them "camp" outside!
