  1. Student benefits for 16 year olds

    I have had no problems with family allowance payments as both my dc took A levels and are under 19. It stops at grad year as they are only completing the Diploma then. Speak to Rachel at Elm xx
  2. British training at Lower and Upper Schools

    Dds British school has not prepared her for the competition. Not one private coaching class. Just her normal training and the solo she danced in her school competition. She hasn’t done bad on that though 😂
  3. British training at Lower and Upper Schools

    My dd won a scholarship to attend the YAGP semi final in Paris last November from the Cecchetti International Ballet Competition in Florence. We had only heard of it from the documentary 𝙵irst Position. She went for the performance experience and is now one of only 3 UK girls attending the finals in New York in 3 weeks time. The final list of competitors came out yesterday. This will be Dds third international competition outing. It has been an amazing experience dancing with others from all over the world in masterclasses. Very expensive though 😓
  4. British training at Lower and Upper Schools

    I can’t yet begin to reflect on our vocational journey as we are still on the roller coaster. I’m not as brave as some of you parents at sharing your experiences. It’s reasuring, in not a good way, that we are not alone in our struggles. I firmly believe that very few children go through the ballet training system unscathed. I feel very upset just writing this but I’m so glad the moderators have let those strong enough to share their experiences do so. Thank you x
  5. British training at Lower and Upper Schools

  6. British training at Lower and Upper Schools

    Be nice if it had been more though 😕
  7. British training at Lower and Upper Schools

    Out of the 13 original year 7 girls who started Elmhurst in 2012 only 2 are in the 6th form. A total of 5 from year 11. So similar statistics to RBS. I calculate that more than 20 girls have been part of the year group at some time. Comings and goings, for a variety of reasons, in vocational schools are the norm I feel.

  14. Different leg length

    Ds was told at the physio assessment for vocational 6th form that his legs were different lengths ! He was offered a place, and then grew dramatically 😊 Don’t worry x
