Hello I am considering sending my daughter - year 8 to Argyle House or DHSG
Does anyone have any experience of it, is it good teaching, is it welcoming and not too academic. Naturally I want her to do well but not sure if she would like doing 2 hours homework a night. She's not sporty, just want a place welcoming quite focused on good grades but not over the top where a B is no good . I know DHSG is supposed to be excellent but also A s only please! Also the sports are competitive naturally is sort of champion league stuff they want, excellent but a lot of pressure.

I meant that I did not want my daughter to feel she has to get an A in everything, sorry I did not mean a B is no good and that I only want A's I want her to be happy but thrive

Did you make a decision? My eldest joined Argyle House in year 9 so happy to answer any questions if you still need help.

Not settling into argyle
Not sure how friendly they are
Could be just teething problems
They are well ahead in curriculum and I was Wondering how you found support for this
