Not that there is any guarantee that it wouldn't be an issue in the other local schools of course.

Guildford High is straightforwardly for the academic high flyer: it only takes in the who are very bright and, predictably, turns out results to match.

Farnborough Hill takes in a much wider range of abilities (although all average or above) and prides itself in doing the very best for each girl. For a bright girl that may mean Oxbridge or medicine and for a less bright girl that may mean something vocational; but the aim in both cases will be to make sure that she has achieved her potential and been very happy while doing so. The school has a very warm community ethos and the new head is very strong. Horrible green stripes are about to be replaced by very attractive new uniform

Once you get through the exam process you will have a much clearer idea.

Difficult one. Guildford will feel like the less "risky" option; but I have seen at close hand how well FH nurtures the very bright girls- it's a very stimulating environment
