    Ok, I know I've posted a similar post before - but that was a couple of months ago.....
    Anyway..... I'm a girl... I live in London and I want to apply to a range of sixth forms for next September. My predicted grades are 8 A*/As and 2 A/Bs and I'm doing add maths as well.
    On top of just a few good sixth forms (state or independent), are any particularly renowned for doing well in maths/sciences....
    Thanks guys,

    I went to leyton sixth form, their science department is great and they have alooot of support for maths. Would recommend it. I managed to achieve very good grades also. Check out their website.

    I would say Mill Hill, since thats my sixth form for AS I was doing 2 sciences, biology and chemistry and the way they taught us was really helpful in my opinion. You'll for sure get great grades if science is your thing.

    I'm probably going to also apply to HB (if I don't get into the private schools) and my current school does better than Woodhouse so my mum doesn't want me to move.

    I live in North West London, so Kent's a bit far.... The furthest I'd go is around the Thames I guess...

    Can i just add that Nower Hill is actually better than Whitmore and if it only took in the A* and A students from the lower school that Saint Dominics do it would actually have a higher success rate at a level. if you only measure those students

    Saint doms is quite good although if you're grades drop they're rebound for kicking you out.
    The teaching at NHHS is very very good and i really recommend it.
