Re: Broomwood Hall - Garrad's Road Prep Closure

I would suggest calling any of the other schools you rejected and seeing if you can join their waitlists

Re: Broomwood Hall - Garrad's Road Prep Closure

Surely everyone will just use VPN instead to bypass the checks

Kids will still see p0rnographic images via other sites like Instagram

Re: In-laws voted leave. They've removed my children's freedom of movement and I can't cope with seeing them any longer.

Surely you are being intolerant?

Re: Henry Cavendish & Rutherford House schools

Surprised that you would be in the catchment for both tbh

Rutherford House was 716m last year at offer day
HC Balham was 239m

Does HC have a uniform?
The Rutherford one looks pricey
