We're also Group 2 this year (for Year 8 entry).  Last year my DD was in the first group and there were 3 groups of girls, one which had the Year 8 & 9 girls, but I didn't really pay any attention to anything except the group we were involved with.  I know last year my DD went underchanged but not sure if she should again this year.  Looking at the timetable I've been sent, there is a time slot for them to change for the orthopaedic assessments and then again to prepare for the class.

Hi. First time user here so here goes!

I was reading thread to see if the White Lodge details had been sent out yet for next Thursday 3rd as I was starting to wonder if I had missed email! Received Elmhurst email today and my daughter is in group 3 (yr 10) so there are three groups. Has anybody received their final details for White Lodge yet please?

We are group two for Elmhurst.

 

DS had an audition for Hammond today. For some reason his music didn't work for the solo. I have checked the CD and it works fine for me so have no idea what happened. He had to do the solo with no music. He was obviously gutted. Should I contact them and ask if they would like a video of it to music or should I just leave it. Feel so bad for him.

I would be very surprised it the Hammond were to look unfavourably on your son`s audition simply because the music didn`t work. They will however i`m sure,take into account the fact that he was able to remain composed and able,assuming, he was, to perform his solo to a good standard. This would show them that he has good improvisational skills,as often things can go wrong on stage and you are expected to carry on regardless.

Thank you. I feel like the worst mum ever. He did the vocal although he has never really sung and did it without any music. He said all the others had backing tracks or sheet music. I didn't realise it was a big deal. I couldn't find any music for the song he chose as he had done it in school and as we only applied just before half term I couldn't get hold of anyone to find out where to get it. Even google proved useless! He did it though and I am so proud of him for just getting on with it.

 

On another note my ds is a mid August birthday for Sept Yr 7 entry to Elmhurst and he is in group 2 so not sure it would be chronological.
