  1. @elfinwas that for this year entry or a couple of years ago, seems mad not to take a fee with remission and give the MDS to someone else.
  2. I would say that sometimes those with MDS' might still find a fee remission better if they are high earners. MDS is still means tested, so if a high earner has MDS they may ask to hand it back in return for a fee remission. This happened previously, so 🤞 for everyone. X
  3. Does anybody know the highest fee remission being given out this year?
  4. Thank you for your kind wishes. First time, in what feels like years, that there were no tears over the phone. She had a girl stand up for her today.

Thank you again.
  7. Hi, I have been a follower of many topics over the years and never really involved myself. I feel I get a lot from just ready areas relevant to me. I have now come to a point where I feel I need advice. It is coming to the end of the academic year and my DD has had her ups and downs with boarding, but is currently facing friendship issues. I particularly find this hard because there is nothing a parent can do to help. They spend so much time together in boarding that having a friend/friends is so important. I worry about the mental health issues surrounding being away from home and
