Sorry for asking but if any of you go to HBS, are the staff and students there nice? Is the school itself nice? I really need an answer because we need to know whether we should move all the way to London for this school. Do you think it’s worth it?
Thank you so much 😊
Please reply 🙏

If you're considering moving to London for a school, I think the real priority here would be academic excellence, which HBS most definitely has. I highly doubt that the school mistreats its students.

Thank you!! Yeah on most websites there is lots of praise for Henrietta Barnett... It’s just that it will cost a lot of money to move to London and try to find a job there (for my parents) and we already have an ok grammar school near us... But thank you for the advice! Yes academic excellence is a real priority, although I’m not sure whether my parents will agree. Thanks Tolgarda for replying 😀

I go there and the students are generally really nice- ofc there are some exceptions but you would expect this from any school.

There are no harsh rules such as detention and things like that- hbs is quite relaxed when it comes to punishment and the school tries its best not to pressurise students. Access to school counselling is quite easy and the school tries its best to help students feel happy.

However, the school is broke. Legit no money at all. Some teachers are amazing whilst others are terrible. And the terrible ones are honestly a nightmare. HBS hasn't got the best teachers and it has got some of the smartest girls in the country which means it can be hard to keep up- girls r also incredibly competitive. Even though we top rankings academically, most of the work comes from students and parents themselves rather than teachers and many rely on out of school tutors.

Not many facilities at all tbh.

I would say the competitive environment motivates me to better but I mean sometimes its a bit of a strain trying to keep up with all of the clever girls when the teachers teach you nothing. dont get me wrong- hbs does have some good teachers but not that many.
