I do hope so. Congrats to our successful parents & their DC, it's wonderful to read good news and if I may select just one parent (without implying any disrespect or suchlike to the others), I'm especially relieved for Lippizaner, after all the earlier agonies about living abroad, home tutoring etc. I feel so pleased, you'd think it was my own DS! :lol:

Hi,
I shall be doing lots of research for the easiest and the cheapest routes! I have four grownup children who live in the UK and I shall be relying on them for some of the running about, but as they love their little brother, I don't think they are going to mind much. They'll be having him on leave weekends etc. He also has a godmother I can call on. Thanks for suggestions.

Congratulations to all the DC's who have got in, I'm relieved the wait is over for you and that you can now look forward to the coming months I know my DD is looking forward to being a nurse maid for the new intake.

As for travel to and from Gatwick, this is a very straightforward journey, Gatwick being just a few stops along the CH to London line.

Good look everyone.

Hi, could anyone possibly email me the school term dates and the rough time of New Entrant's Day do you think? Tried going on the website to find them, but my rubbish internet connection refused to let me download them, and as I am going to have to plan about a year ahead travel wise, then I shall need them. Feeling frustrated!

Well done to the children who have got in, I was getting quite stressed just reading everyones posts on here, especially Lippizaners ! I suppose it brings all the memories of two years ago flooding back. Once the euphoria fades away and the reality of it all sets in I am sure you will have lots of questions which, hopefully, we can help answer.

New entrants day for us was on the Sunday of the first bank holiday in May. First day for new second formers is usually the Wednesday after the Sunday when all the existing pupils start (2nd Sep).

C.H is a wonderful school, I hope you enjoy the experience as much as we have thus far.
