Failure?? At Wimbledon High?? They'll just ask Daddy to send the chauffeur round to take them shopping to make them feel better.........

If they want to learn how to fail surely it would be easier to have them learn about French culture?

Ethos83 is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Re: Fail & Grow

Come off it. It's a perfectly good middle class girls' school. High academic standards though not quite North London Collegiate. No coke spoons. It ain't Roedean or Bedales.
