dee dee - The point I was trying to make was that Habs doesn't do well for its students compared to other schools. I would not hold out faith that it could do any better than Globe given that it doesn't do better than nearby schools in Lewisham.

I have no direct experience of it - I didn't go there - but if I had a choice between, say, Harris and Aske's I'd pick the latter. I think a 74% pass rate for 5 GCSEs is very good and from my recollection of research done in preparation for my son's transition to secondary school a few months back would beat most, if not all, Southwark "state" schools.
