Re: Are Miele machines worth the extra??

Not for me I’m afraid. I purchased the most expensive both washing machine and dryer. The dryer broke down after only 8 months. It was covered under guarantee, but personally I’m not impressed by Miele and wouldn’t buy again. Bosch has been brilliant and we have Samsung in our rental Property which ...

Re: Kingsdale Foundation School

It’s actually not. Gipsy Hill station is the closest to walk (quicker by a couple of minutes), and straight through to Wandsworth and Clapham from there. Sydenham Hill isn’t a straight route to Clapham and the surrounding areas, so not sure why that station would be on the Nappy valley radar?

Re: Kingsdale Foundation School

What do you mean, travel is through kingsdale estate? Nearest station is either Gipsy Hill or West Dulwich- neither requires walking through an estate! Journey there from Wandsworth common for example is very straightforward. It’s a few stops from WC station, or from Clapham Common (straight through...

Re: Self tan cream recommendation

Hi, I have had so many compliments for my tan, which people thought had come from a tropical holiday abroad! Thought I’d share as I’ve not been anywhere further than Cornwall this year… it glides on brilliantly if you use a tanning mitt and the colour is very very nice. It doesn’t smell bad either. ...

Re: Private school officials called Labour’s Bridget Phillipson ‘chippy’ as it steps up campaign against VAT on schools

Totally agree Rubysmum2013. I think a lot of this is hot air. Labour would love to implement this immediately, but in practice it will surely take a few years to actually prepare for… with a mass exodus of children moving into state, we would definitely have to move all ours across as we couldn’t af...

Re: Child with ADHD

Hi, the SENCO at La Retraite is second to none. We are blown away by the support our daughter receives. The team are I’d say, one of the largest at any secondary and every SEN child gets lots of individual support. We had almost lost hope but since our daughter started here her confidence has been r...

Re: Advice needed on SEN support Secondary school please

Yes this process has been a revelation to us. The state school she’s at has smaller class sizes than most, but the SEN students are put into groups of 10 or 15 and also have 1-1 support so that’s what sets it apart. The private schools put on an amazing show about all the facilities they have to off...

Re: Advice needed on SEN support Secondary school please

Our daughter has SEN and is going into year 10 next term. We have tried two different schools who claim to have amazing Senco facilities. It feels like we have been on a treadmill for years now as we have found these independent schools so often seem to fall short of their promises. I’ve met up with...

Re: Did you mind if you didn't receive a gift for giving birth?

Love what everyone has shared on here (except Lepresident). I was so happy to have had a healthy baby, having gone through two weeks of him in the special unit following emergency c section.. the best gift was being able to take him home. Where have these absurd expectations come from? Other women s...
