Please, help) Maybe it's too late, still...

My daughter had been awarded a place on the basis of music aptitude in Camden school for girls.

Another our option is Fortismere (we live in its catchment).

What would you choose?? ) I'm lost. No intuition, no sufficient knowledge about them both, and my daughter is not very helpful: she doesn't mind any.

Results-wise, there's not much difference. Camden is very impressive given its intake, though does have much more of a class divide. Camden is much more street than Fortismere - skateboarding lessons for PE, girls let out at lunchtime from Year 9 - which you're either OK with or not. Personally, I found it a bit too much, but others rave about it.

Fortismere reported to be a very different school depending on whether you are in the top set. Those in local primaries tutor to get into the top set at Fortismere. I know someone who was asked to leave after L6 as results not good enough.
