    i know this is a silly thing to point out, but if you are capable in going to a grammar school, you should be able to spell the school correctly.

    It's "Watford"

    And, you can't make someone you don't know make this decision for you, it is your choice in the end

    Hi,

    I typed really fast and made a simple mistake. It is worth noting that there are only 30 places on offer at Watford. I just need advice on which is a better sixth form and then I can make my own my mind up. Is an all boys school a disadvantage in later life?

    i wouldnt say that it is a disadvantage, but after having a quick look - and i mean quick look, watford is more appealing to me, mainly becuase they gain very good grades and 46% of people go to the russell group unis, but that is my opinion, it is your decision in the end (:

    Boys and girls learn differently. An all boys school is likely to be a better environment academically if not socially. I suppose that's the greatest decision to make.

    Spelling errors are one thing, but spelling mistakes deserve attention

    I went Watford Boys :woo:
    Enviroment is great, you will have so much fun!!
    Teaching... not so, although some teachers are brilliant but then again some are terrible... you will probably have to do a lot of independant studying

    Plus, theres a Pepe's Peri Peri near by, which you will probably be spending most of your lunchtimes at for the next two years

    Hi,

    I am swayed to go to Watford now. You guys have been great with your replies. Just wanted to ask do the exam boards make any difference to studying and grades? I hear that Watford does a harder A level exams which is putting me off a bit.

    How is it that they get so many boys into the Russell group of uni's? What is their secret????

    you cant have a harder A Level, it depends on what exam board they do.

    Also, the secret is to work hard!

    Watford Grammar is my 10th and favourite school - better even than some of the private schools I've been to.

    it depends really, do you want to have a good social life, or go for the academia? I am going to one of the best sixth forms because i want to do well in academia. but it is what suits you the most (:
