I have a friend whose DD got a place at WGGS but initially wanted Parmiters'...They are no.11 on the waiting list.What should they do?Is there much difference between the schools?

If they want Parmiters they should accept the WGGS place and stay on the waiting list for Parmiters.
Both schools get good results, but it really depends on where you live and how you feel about single sex/coed education.

cobhamhall I would suggest she visits the schools and see which one better suits the DD.

I didn't visit Watford Girls as I have a DS but I did find all the other schools had different approaches to MFL and science.

I would also suggest that she look at the background information (intake mix etc) for the last set of GCESs.
