Where do you send your child if you want private but not selective?

Hi, as far as I can tell pretty much all the private schools in SW18 and around are selective.....we are based in wandsworth.

if you don't want your child to go through these tests to get into a school or if they aren't the most academic child, what are your options? Thanks!

Child sometimes hurts herself when frustrated - advice on how to deal with this please...

Hi Recently, and on very rare occasions, when my daughter (who's 8) gets upset or frustrated (e.g. not getting her own way about something), she has started showing signs of trying to hurt herself. it doesn't last long, she normally blows up and calms down very quickly. About 6 months ago, she stare...

Re: Builder recommendation for Side Return Extension

Hi, I'd thoroughly recommend MI Designs, run by Iwona. They are really curteous and considerate builders and deliver on time. They have completed numerous small projects around our house as well as installing a new kitchen for us. They didn't do our side return but have done many in the area. midesi...

Re: State secondary schools in wandsworth

I'm in a very similar position to original poster. rooting4tootking mentions Greycoat - I've just had a look and unless you have been attending church weekly for 5 years, it looks pretty much impossible to get into. And very far away. Does anyone go there from Wandsworth? And is a generally held vie...

Helping friend after the loss of her baby

hi all, devastatingly a friend's baby passed away. The pregnancy went well and it was only when he was a few days old that a lung issue was identified and sadly he passed away following surgery. So it's all very shocking and unexpected for her and her husband. And very difficult to know what to do o...

Re: Refurb of existing loft extension - any suggestions?

Hi I can thoroughly recommend MI Designs. In the interests of openness, it is run by a friend of mine, but they have done lots of work for us and we've been really happy with them. Iwona runs the 'front office' and her father and his team do the building work. They are really diligent and on time, f...

Re: Husband wants to go on holiday on his own

I'm sure he's worked very hard and is deserving of a holiday. As are you. But travelling for 4 months isn't just a holiday, it's a really really long time. You have responsibilities and can't run off for a 4 month holiday, he can't either. Perhaps if you put it to him in a way which is not about how...
