I have just started looking at private schools for my dd in the Fleet area and wondered if anyone can recommend one in particular. My choice seems to be Farnborough Hill, St Nicholas and Alton Convent, possibly Frensham Heights too , although this seems to be quite a unique school. I'd be grateful for anyones opinion and experiences. Thanks

Have posted previously about FH, my DD loved it and stayed there until she was 18. She got very good results and has a nice group of friends whom she still sees a lot of. Generally a sensible set of parents too.
My DSIL had children at Frensham and was not so impressed with it but that may be just her experience.

Thankyou lifeisontheup, thats really good to know. Do you know any thing about Alton Convent or maybe Lord Wandsworth, which isn't too far from here either.

Don't know much about either of those but Alton Convent socialise with my youngest DS's school and they seem nice enough girls. I think transport from Fleet to FH would be easier as they can get the train which is generally much cheaper than the school buses.
I've not heard particularly good things about Lord Wandsworth but things may have changed.

There are several in Guildford. Might be a bit far for you?

Also Abbey, Leighton Park in Reading.

Wellington should be an easy journey.

Thats great thank you JoanByers. Lifeisontheup, I would be really interested in finding out what you have heard about Lord Wandsworth, as I also have a younger son and will need to look into schools for him next year too. Thanks again.

kazysgirl - You might find this website useful:

It seems to have info on all of the private schools in Hampshire, plus I think you can filter them by area and whether they are single sex or not. Farnborough Hill and Alton Convent are definitely on there.

Good luck with your search! smile
