Re: SG13 or SG14

It's smaller, everyone knows everyone else and we felt that they wouldn't be able to coast there, there is no escape ;) . We were right on that. We spoke to quite a few parents who had children already there as well. My sons are 15 and 13. There are nice and not so nice people all over, the not so ...

Re: SG13 or SG14

Thanks Steve It is sooo very tricky...... Are you saying that for Simon Balle you stand as much of as a chance with an SG14 post code as you would with an SG13? Jeez I do not know what to do!!!!!

Re: SG13 or SG14

Is it right to say that to be accepted for Richard Hale or Simon Balle you have to have a SG13 post code? No, much of Hertford is in SG14. In fact the SG14 boundary runs past the Richard Hale School gates! Loosely speaking, East & South Hertford are in SG13, West & North Hertford are in SG1...

Great to hear that Sele has done good for motivated teenagers with parents that are committed to their education...I know I am and cannot understand how a parent cannot be. Hav...

Re: SG13 or SG14

I have children at Sele. We viewed all the local schools both on open evenings and during the day. Both our sons and us decided that Sele was right for them and put it down as first choice. Glad to say we were not wrong, they are both doing very well and are happy there. Nice post Minnie...thankyou...

Re: SG13 or SG14

You should read the latest ofsted reports on sele, and look at their results and then make your choice. The problem for sele - is simply comparative. Simon balle, but especially presdales and richard hale are soooo good, that it makes sele look pretty mediocre. Yes I can indeed see the difference i...

Re: SG13 or SG14

If you want to find out which schools cover each of the postcodes you can do so here http://schoolsfinder.direct.gov.uk/schoolsfinder Thank you Joe Through this link I discovered that the Sele school only achieved 35% 5x GCSE's graded A-C last year. This has to be a real concern??? What do you think?
