(Asking for a friend.)

Does anyone have any experience with the school? My friend's little girl (8) is desperate to go to this school. I believe she'd be a day student or weekly boarder.

Anything good or bad I can pass on?

Thank you!

Someone should at least suggest to the OP that she searches here using the first two words of her title ...

There is nothing bad to be said about Queen Ethelburga's

Would anyone like a glass of water?

I've got some Haribo.

OP the thread you are looking for is the one posted in education about last Feb if that helps.

WanderWomble Mon 15-Jun-15 11:54:26

I've got it and have sent the link to my friend.

You won't find anything bad about QE's because their lawyers are on the case deleting anything but the positive.

I don't know anyone who went to that horsy school but I competed plenty with girls who did and they were very rude about them.....the leaflets used to fall out of horse and pony I was quite keen but bullet dodged I reckon wink

WanderWomble Mon 15-Jun-15 12:01:12

Which speaks volumes in itself!

Does she like horses? Has she had a flier from a horsey magazine?

There are other schools which allow you to take your pony/offer riding but which don't advertise in quite the same way.

Rosieposy4 Mon 15-Jun-15 20:52:48

no horses there any longer anyway!, but they have kept very quiet about that.

ludovica Mon 15-Jun-15 20:54:37

I have never actuallly typed these words before but marking place.

RafaIsTheKingOfClay Mon 15-Jun-15 21:19:06

You are right Rosie. The mention of horses seems to have disappeared from their website.

There is a free DVD available though.

biscuit unfortunately

I couldn't find anything on the website about horses but I did find this:

keeping in touch helps tremendously to helping our Service children settle and relax.

Where have all the horses gone?

RafaIsTheKingOfClay Mon 15-Jun-15 22:02:26

There's so many things I want to post from that website. The boarding section contains some absolute gems.

QE has its uses : the reading up on the Defamation Act I had to do came in useful at work recently grin

mummytime Mon 15-Jun-15 22:46:19

They still have a £1M equestrian centre mentioned, but thats all. What happened if you joined because of the horses, and then....

I actually remember this school always used to advertise in the Telegraph when I was a girl (a long long time ago), the only one I remember doing so.

Wotsitsareafterme Mon 15-Jun-15 22:48:14

I may have started reading the's um....entertaining wink

RafaIsTheKingOfClay Mon 15-Jun-15 23:03:45

grin Talk.

That's a new website since the last threads isn't it? I don't remember it looking like that.

Yes the little girl is very horsey- she does Pony Club and has her own pony. The horses are a very big draw for her I think.
