  3. Taxi is quite right to mention the possibility of DC being identified which is why the Forum encourages the use of pseudonyms as user names and caution about what detail you are posting. It is good that so many of our parents have stayed on and made comments after their DCs' educational journeys have ended and are able to offer the benefit of their experience. It is also important that people write about their own and their DC's experiences and not about a third party which, however well you know them, is still hearsay.

  5. Very sad indeed. RIP Prince Philip.
  6. Yes he did! We've known Gavin since his early days at Northern Ballet. Just before he started talking I sent a comment "Tell Gavin he can start now". I didn't realise he would see the comment as it just said visible to panellists.

It was lovely he remembered the joke. Gavin is such a lovely gentleman as well as being a fanta

  8. I can't in any way comment on the school but I absolutely love Copenhagen! I think it is a fabulous city. I don't know about any funding you would get and what it would cover but when the £ plummeted a few years ago we found it an expensive city to visit. Previously it had been cheaper for us to go to Copenhagen for a weekend of ballet watching than to go to London for the same! What a wonderful position for your daughter to be in, whatever you finally decide.
  9. Joining LBC has been one of the most enjoyable things I have done during the current lockdown! What a great evening tonight. Thank you.
