My daughter has been offered a place in all three schools sixth forms. All 3 schools are rated Outstanding with solid track records. I would appreciate any helpful comments and suggestions on the academic approach, senior management and social cohesiveness at the schools to help me and others make a well informed decision. Many thanks!

My son attends Twyford an is very happy there .
The school is very good with music specialisms. The headmistress is dynamic and all my DS teachers have been very engaging .
The school is largish . They have a very good work ethic and good extra -curricular activities . I however , can't speak for 6th form as I have only just reread your message .My son is only in Year 8!

No personal experience but friends who's son is at Twyford very happy. Friends at LM not so much. Two, that I know of, are moving their girls.

In all honesty i wouldn't pick Lady Margaret. My DD is in the first year of sixth form and it has been really hard going. Two of her teachers have been absent for most of the year and although through no fault of their own i feel my DD has been left with cover work and no teacher for a lot of the year. The head of year is very good but the school is very focused on high achievers and middle of the road students are left without very much support. I think it is dependant on what subjects she will be taking though.
