The children did very well.
Rachel passed Wallington and was offered an academic scholarship by Old Palace which we decided to accept.
Benjamin passed Wallington and Wilson's and having put Wallington as the first choice, he was offered a place there. The amazing thing was that on the day the offers went out Benjamin was also approached by Wilson's stating that even though he didn't select them as a first choice, they'll offer him an immediarte place if he changed his mind! He decided to stay with his first choice.
He was also offered a place at Whitgift, which we all loved but without a scholarship, we couldn't accept. Both children were also offered places at Caterham.
Overall, we are very proud and very pleased. I'm glad this stage is over though.
We didn't start " working" intensively until the summer at the Holiday Learning Club. So unlike many, the children didn't have to endure years of this pressure. I think as a result we have emerged from this process without any scars...
Do write back.
All the best
