PostPosted: Thu Mar 01, 2007 8:41 pm 
After my tears this morning, daugher took it all in gave me a big hug a few tears and then got on with it, made me so proud. Have heard that she is very near the top of the waiting list (3/4) and although they wont guarantee her a place did mention that in last two years all children on waiting list had been given a place....so heres hoping i think! and although we will take place if offered, it has made me think if its all worth it, a bright child will do well anywhere - a reasonable comp, it will be interesting to see how my 2 girls compare one is in a good comp in oxfordshire and the younger one (if she does get into Kendrick) in a grammar!. Thank you to everyone for all there support really felt the support, i wish i had found this site a bit earlier!!. :o :o

It's really good news that your daughter took it so well. You defintitely should be proud of her.
I am glad that you seem a lot happier now and confident that whatever the outcome, your daughter will do well.

Best of luck with the waiting list.

Catherine

What a star she is.. your daughter!
It does look quite good..if the waiting list moves fast and she does get offered a place, she might want to go for it..Deal with it when it happens.

It's the initial disappointment that is always hard to bear..especially as the wait is so long for the children. But if later, an opportunity arises for her,her motivation and determination is what will guide you as to what to do.

We are all thinking of you and yours. Sleep well.

Congratulations to all the children who have got places at Kendrick/Reading/other Berkshire grammars, and good luck to anyone who is on a waiting list!

My daughter is probably taking the Kendrick test this November. I say 'probably', as she actually slightly preferred the feel of our local comp when we had a look at both schools last year. Her older brother is already at the comp and loves it there. We are lucky to live in an area (Wokingham LEA) where the secondary schools are generally very good; our catchment comp being particularly popular and successful - no coincidence that we paid over the odds to live in the area!

Therefore, I am happy with whatever she chooses to do, although secretly I admit that I would love her to try for Kendrick - I'll keep you posted.....
