Re: 2014 Admissions

It was always just as competitive for siblings, in my time as a parent anyway, and I know lots of families whose second child did not get in. But if a sibling did get in then the assessed fees were halved for the child whilst both were at CH. Thank goodness this was the case, and I feel extremely fo...

Re: School Dinners In Present Times.

Over the twelve years I was a parent (until last Summer) I think the food went through phases - sometimes good, sometimes not so great! But there is choice, and so I think there always seems to be something that suits most people. A really fussy eater would have a problem with any institutional type...

Re: Confirmation Service

Bishop of Horsham confirmed my two in 2004 and 2009. He was a very inspiring man.

Re: Nervous about the road ahead ....

A West Gift is extremely valuable if you fit the criteria, apply and the school will tell you. If you get one you only ever pay half of your assessed fees, West's Gift pay the other half. Sounds like you live in the right parish, so try.

Re: Parents' forum on CH website

I used to find it so difficult to use - and sometimes impossible - that I gave up trying.

Re: Whole school photo - how often

The last one was 2010, the one before that was 2006. Every child who is there from the age of 11 should be in one during their seven years at CH. They are huge!

Re: 2012 ISI inspection report

Only criticism seems to be one Department; leadership and teaching standards. Wonder which one? Everything else seems to have been given "Excellent".

Re: "Official" Parents' Forum

The Portal and Forum seem to be the same thing. I couldn't log on for ages, then it suddenly worked. No idea why. Used the details we were given, we don't seem to have individual "names". No one seems to be using it which is a shame, but then maybe not many people have been able to get on it. All th...

Re: "Official" Parents' Forum

Exciting stuff! My "application to join the official parents' forum is being reviewed" and I will be notified. So exciting................. But seriously I do think there is a place for a parents' only forum as well as this one. There are some chats that maybe you do just want to keep between parent...

Very strange, it now works! Didn't do anything differently either. But you're right, there's nothing on it!

Re: "Official" Parents' Forum

How did you log on? I can't seem to do it. Is the username and password they sent us relevant on the new website? Can't follow the link to the security site either! All rather irritating.............

"Official" Parents' Forum

Has anyone been able to access the Parents' Forum on the new "School like no other" website? I just cannot work out how to do it! Keeps telling me to go to a security site but the link doesn't seem to work! Help!
