Trump thread #109 Election Part 3 and off he goes with a trumpety trump? According to the most ISI report dated 2015 it says about 1/3 are of Jewish Faith. This not an issue at all at SHHS, there is zero gettoism and no dominant groups unlike in some other schools I also know. DSS has announced a Christmas list after we've already finished shopping. Oxbridge offers at 20%+ for two consecutive years.We have no regrets....So in answer to OP, there's very little between City and SHHS currently so locality May be the key factor here. We live within a walking distance from SHHS; however, we are close t It's funny you should say that @mamabyname as my daughter in y7 at SHHS was saying this about one of the girls on her sports team. A lot of friendship groups have already been established and it can be hard to break into them. Dear Mumsnet community,I will be very grateful for your comments on our dilemma. "Talk" is not always well-informed. Do i have a moral obligation to tell people I can't deliver their bacon sandwiches? My DD moved schools for 6th form and the 1st term was tough.

They're both great schools though and it would be worth finding out how many new girls SHHS takes.I really liked Highgate when we looked round for 11+ but one thing did put me off and that was that the kids have to follow a dress code in sixth form. @farewelltoarms I know of ex City girls in various year groups at SHHS and I wouldn't want to say anything to identify anyone individually. We live within a walking distance from SHHS; however, we are close to tube and the commute to the City School for Girls would be a matter of 30 mins, alternatively we can use the school coach to send her to City.I understand there are quite a few of you living around Hampstead who were faced with the same dilemma and I am wondering:1. Added to this is the significant step up in the academic work and it can be a very stressful time. Any thoughts would be most appreciated! If I had to choose between two pretty similar jobs, but one was walking distance and one was an hour commute (I'm doubling it as that's what it will feel like to a 7-year-old as their sense of time is so different to ours), then I know which one I'd choose.I don't know anyone with daughters at both to compare directly. Thanks for the update OP. That is too much and completely unnecessary for uni applications.It is difficult to change schools for 6th form, regardless of which school she chooses.

DSS has announced a Christmas list after we've already finished shopping. My email from them in Nov said "I shall let you know about interviews in the last week of January 2020. Which school did you choose and why?2. She has been asking around about the two schools and she's getting slightly worried as she's heard that quite a lot of girls in shhs are unhappy and she's heard the girls in ucs described as 'bitchy'. No idea about what they expect from the essay assessment! From what I know and it's not the full story, it was definitely to do with pastoral issues and wanting to be more local. To comment on this thread you need to create a Mumsnet account. I wondered whether she'd been managed out of City but if she was so far from academically able enough to stay on, then I don't think she'd have been able to get into SHHS as it's not dramatically less academic.We live nearer to City but didn't apply as we didn't love it so thought I didn't make sense as getting in would only present a dilemma (and actual journey times would be similar). Interview Week at Francis Holland Regent’s Park is 31st January to 7th February 2020." Menu Premium Active discussions Register or sign in Any comments about the schools? This is page 1 of 1 (This thread has 10 messages.). I think she's the best sort of inspiring, understated but highly knowledgeable and effective. DD will shortly sit her exam. I do think this might just be other people's overreactions and I don't think she should be stressing too much about it... Highgate is a fantastic school and not at all traditional in the way that you describe. I went there 20 years ago At that time it was about 60% Jewish, likely because of location, but it's not a religious school in the slightest. I understand the reasons for them moving range from going for the gentler approach and better pastoral care at SHHS while still being a school that gets top grades (well over 90% of all grades a and a star at GCSE each year) to wanting a more local school and more locally based friends. Congrats to your DD on her offers and deciding on UCS. I'm a regular poster but have name changed for this thread.DD joined the sixth form at SHHS in Sep 19 and we're extremely pleased with the school.I agree that this is a good time for SHHS - the head is very strong and inspirational, the building works are complete and their recent GCSE / A'Level results are some of their best on record. Thanks. It's funny you should say that @mamabyname as my daughter in y7 at SHHS was saying this about one of the girls on her sports team. We will go back to the offers days next week before decidi I am leaning toward Godolphin but SHHS so much easier for our family. I think when they joined City in the junior school, SHHS may have been between head teachers so perhaps at the time it was more of an unknown - but I think the current head at SHHS is quite inspiring. We liked the fact that the sixth former who we chatted to at UCS was wearing jeans and a really horrible hoodie. My dd received offers at both SHHS and G&L and we are trying to decide which to take. I know it is academically excellent but I am mainly concerned to hear about how nurturing it is .Is it inclusive with girls coming from non-Jewish family? I completely agree re. She had no problems with teachers - she really enjoyed the way the teachers interacted with her and other students. If you chose City, what factors justified the journey for you.Thank you so very much! She felt like its 'vibe' wasn't hers.Personally, I'm a fan of mixed school and am really happy with her decision.We also looked at the school's respective grades and UCS achieved considerably higher results in the subjects she wanted.

I live locally and say that the school predominately is made up of local girls mainly from the Hampstead area with a handful traveling in from further distances. What were the entrance tests and interviews like for UCS? This is page 1 of 1 (This thread has 9 messages.). Your concerns are totally unfounded.
