Is FH a good school? Dad's smart but not highly academic, with 5b marks on most subjects, Grade 4 in ballet (RAD). However, we haven't got plenty of money. Any suggestions would help.

sorry. DD's smart.

Seems to be doing well at the moment. New head a couple of years ago, who came from a rural boarding school and tells parents in presentations how horrified she is about the level of pressure on London girls and how she wants to both reduce (though not remove) it and also how to deal with it.

Cramped site, and girls need to be bussed to most sports (quite a lot of which happen in before/after school clubs).

It's part of the consortium, so you can apply for more than one school but your DD sits only one exam for all consortium members.

I've never heard a good word about it to be honest, and having met a few FH girls, I can say, only IME, that they were universally bratty and not terribly nice.

Thanks for the infos.
Apparently, they don't just focus on academics but mold the girls to be confident and ambitious.
