Re: Residential assessment?

My DD when she applied was on the reserve list and we were fortunate to hear 2 weeks later that she had a place. Some children decline their place, which for some is an insurance if they don't get their preferred choice of selective school, particularly those from London. More children also joined i...

Re: 3rd form GCSE options

They always used to do the GCSE's over 3 years as it allowed the staff to step outside the syllabus and provide a broader approach rather than slavishly following the prescribed one set by the examining board.

Re: Steve Hinton - scholarship boy?

It is/was my understanding, that children at CH who did not have a presentation were all 'scholarship' / competetive. That was the terminology used on my daugthers ucas report when she left CH almost 3 years ago

Re: Expelled

Yes they are still expelled but they term it permanently excluded now. There has been one that I know of this academic year, but there may be more.

Re: Day Pupils - announcement pending

I have heard there will be 1 full fee payer per year per house, and 1 day pupil per joint house. If they need the money they need it but that is 100 pupils from needy backgrounds who won't have a place.
