Re: Four stabbings and a fatal shooting marks bloody evening across Wandsworth, Clapham and Plumstead

Really sad

Definitely time for a new government to invest in communities and the police to stop this horrific waste of life.

Re: Husband won't help my sister with school fees

Could you offer a payment plan+contribution? She can presumably afford part of the school fees If they've been able to stretch to the whole lot. Let's say she can afford 20%. You gift a percentage, let's say 25%, then she borrows the 55%. This is then repaid over a longer period of time. Your sister...

Re: New boy medical examination

A friend of mine went to the boarding school where his father was the school doctor. It was a standing joke that his dad had held the testicles of every boy in the school. He's not a paedophile, he's a doctor doing his job. Certainly, when I was at school, these exams were a normal part of an examin...

Re: Newton Prep 2016 11+ results

if your child goes there, why not make an appointment with the head to discuss this, rather than rely on anecdotal evidence? Results can vary for a huge number of reasons.

Re: Considering moving to Earlsfield

Is it wrong to say that your posts have made me laugh? Earlsfield is rough? Hilarious. The high street isn't as polished as you get in Fulham and you won't find as many plantation shutters in the windows but it's a great place to live. I used to live in a mansion block just by Putney Bridge and got ...

Re: Sheringdale, Our Lady Queen of HeavenRC, St Mary's RC ad

Unless you are living very close and are a practicing catholic (the priest reference needs to cover two years of regular practice), you've got no chance of getting in. It's an excellent school, and, in addition to sheringdale, is also outstanding. It's a small school with great pastoral care, very n...
