Which of them is better for A-level?
How would you comment on these two schools and which one would you choose?

Um - well one is in Oxford and the other in Cambridge and neither is boarding. Stephen Perse is the successor to the old Perse Girls Sixth Form. This was a very small sixth form as a large proportion of the girls left the school after GCSE to go to either the Perse or Hills Road Sixth Form College.
If I had a choice I'd choose The Perse - great school with excellent results and normal (but clever) pupils. Non pressurised but happy and high achieving.

What if you could only choose between the two?
Both have already offered a place and so it's only a decision to be made between them.
Which of them have a higher ranking in A-level? or better in teaching A-level?
Do you mean that pupils in Stephen Perse are not that normal (too focus on studying/ pressurised)?

Do you live in Oxford or Cambridge?

Hills Road. Every time.

Stephen Perse 6th Form was only founded in the last 3 years, so it hasn't a track record apart from in its previous incarnation as Perse Girls 6th Form. Not sure how many boys are there and why they'd choose that sixth form over the other main academic choices in Cambridge - Perse or Hills Road.
