Hi all,
does anyone know how FHG year 6 results look like this year?

Thanks a lot

Why?
It’s a school with a consistent track record. Each year results can vary up and down.
What’s special about this year results?

Good evening MMMomDD. I am a prospective parent and interested how the girls did this year. Last year was quite spectacular smile

Result always fluctuate. Stellar years may or may not be repeated next year. Its true for all schools in the area - FH, G, KP, Bute.
And results difference year on year doesn’t mean that the school suddenly became better or worse.
Kids in these schools are selected very young, and it’s imprecise, so there is a lot of variation in abilities in classes year on year.
So - as a prospective parent - the exact numbers are only relevant somewhat.

FH is a good school for a right child, and a right parent. So are the other ‘academic’ schools in the area.

But if you must know - FH normally publishes results quite early. So all will soon be revealed.

I don t understand why people are getting so offended when we discuss school results. it is like it was a taboo subject. Of course you will not based your decision solely on the Y6 exam results but lets be honest for some parents it is important. FH like KPS, Glendower, Bute is an amazing school and results will vary from year to year as it is very much based on the strength of the cohort and other schools cohort.

Offended?
I was merely asking why ask now when the results will be soon punished.
If your DD is starting in sept - you aren’t likely withdraw her now, irrespective of results.
Maybe I’ve been in a primary preps age stage too long and so can’t get excited or bothered with the annual results comparisons between the usual suspects.

In a very small school (IIRC Falkner House has less than 30 per year) the statistical noise between result years will be far greater than any impact the teachers have.

If your child is about to start there, worry about their end of school results in a few years time when your child will have the same teachers as the kids taking tests.
