Re: A to A* results for 2015 A Level

First you have to say a massive congratulations to all the pupils and their families for achieving such high results. That said the schools have also done well in selecting the most academic children it can to make their lives easy and to make their results look great. For the most selective schools...

Re: Private school with best results / destinations.

Perhaps as you do not yet know your child (or children's) academic ability or any additional needs they may have, another few questions to ask could be.. How many children go to these schools but do not go to any "top" schools ? How many are quietly asked to leave the school because they are not sui...

Re: How i got my daughter into 4 top schools from a state sc

Sorry if I sound suspicious but one post saying how good a tutor from a certain company is - a few days after they advertise their services on here.... That is just one point - my main issue is that I would expect you to be praising and naming the "ordinary primary school in Streatham" for giving yo...

Re: Online Petition for Proposed New Girls Senior School

Rooting4tooting That is not correct. It is true that some independent schools offer bursaries and scholarships but they are rarely aimed at poor families. Nowadays bursaries and scholarships offer a few discounted fees to talented children from families who still pay large fees which are out of reac...

Re: New stamp duty rules

Julien, How potentially devastating for you and your neighbours - you deserve a lot of sympathy from others in equally unfortunate positions. Could you remind all how much you, and your neighbours paid for your houses, and how much they are worth now? Could you also explain if you ever intend to pay...

Re: New stamp duty rules

Have those complaining ever thought to stop how much money their house has earned for them in the last 5-10 years? Petal? Julien? £500,000 tax free? What did you do for this windfall? What contribution to society did u make for your windfall compared to others, like nurses, teachers who cannot affor...

Re: Private School Deposit Timing

@so Confused Great advice with regard to any school that claims to "select" at that age ! Perhaps if keen on going to Thomas's, as many are, ask how many of applied/sat test to get into Alleyn's at 11+ this year and how many were offered places. Both schools are highly sort after mixed cohort day sc...

Re: Parents to be consulted over plans to change sibling rul

@scientist and those who think that it's ok to opt out of tax for things you don't use. Why do you think no civilised country does this and no sensible political party suggests it ? It is clearly a bonkers way to fund anything and only needs a moments brain power to realise the uninteded consequence...

Re: Would this annoy you?

We have 3 older children. It is worrying with the first child but you learn to trust. If you are prepared to leave your child the key word is trust. If you do not trust your carer then you cannot live the way you have chosen. If you need or want to go back to work then you need to trust the person y...

Re: Chivalry Road Playground / Bolingbroke Academy

@petal

Have you been to the Chivalry Road Playground ?
It is for children of all ages and there is no sign to indicate otherwise.
Further it states on the Wandsworth Common website that it is an open playground for all children.

Re: Chivalry Road Playground / Bolingbroke Academy

Just to clarify the playground is for ALL children and no age limit. It includes a Tarmac 5-a-side pitch. There is no age limit and the children are all entitled to be there.

Re: Chivalry Road Playground / Bolingbroke Academy

The intake of the Bolingbroke is far more local than any other secondary school in Wandsworth, including all the private schools. Last year 40 children from Belleville and also 40 from Honeywell went straight to the Bolingbroke, around 10 went from each of the other 3 feeder schools and 10 went on d...
