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

Thanks a lot

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.

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.

This year, they received three offers from SPGS...

I would say, still a very good result, and this years has really been different so maybe doesn't play to their knowledge of testing as it has been in previous years.

CLmmm Fri 19-Mar-21 13:20:52

Anyone heard of Glendower, Bute, and so on?

FriendlyMom Fri 19-Mar-21 13:41:59

8 girls from PH got SPGS offers.

Not sure you were talking about Falkner House? they published results for this year and they got 5 SPGS offers out of 21 girls.

FriendlyMom Fri 19-Mar-21 17:25:43

Is your daughter going to FH @Lolakath19? How do you find the school so far? Did she attend the nursery before that?

Bringonspring Fri 19-Mar-21 22:57:53

Oooo I love knowing what the offers are. We should start a thread and broaden it out to other schools

Lolakath19 Sat 20-Mar-21 12:32:14

Yes she is at FH (my son in the boy school as well). And we are very happy!
She was not at the nursery.

Feel free to pm me if you have any specific questions etc

Some schools have posted their 2021 results. Pembridge is quite impressive considering it is a non selective school and don't pressure their girls.

FriendlyMom Sun 28-Mar-21 15:45:58

Could this be a result of Pembridge's online platform being quite good, so the girls did not miss much during lockdown, unlike the majority of the girls from state primaries, for instance? The other school results (FH, G) seem quite consistent, in comparison.

Glendower 7 SPGS 15 G&L
Falkner 5 SPGS 11 G&L
Kensington Prep not yet published

I think it is the result of coronavirus. The intake at SPGS will not be nearly as diverse this year. It will be more concentrated from top well known schools. More difficult to look for the exceptional among state schools who have not had access to better online teaching. So SPGS go for the surer option and that means more from the top private schools and families that could afford the extra support. If Pembridge are indeed improving results, they are going to have to throw it again next year to get some consistency outside exceptional circumstances.

Bute is 13spgs 6g&l 10 latymer

Adding to the Bute stats for a fuller picture. Bute had 29 offers each from both G&L and Latymer and 15 to SPGS. That is about half the year group staying in Hammersmith.
