Hi, DS obtained a place at KECHB and we accepted offer by completing school and local LEA acceptance form and sent them both back to the school. I have logged onto the Birmingham Admissions website but the information hasn't been updated.

I am wondering when should we expect to hear from either the school or LEA regarding confirmation?

The school will contact you soon .Some schools will contact you with a separate acceptance form asking for additional details such as what language the DC did at primary school and a congratulations letter.
They will then contact you further with a welcome pack and an invitation to an open evening before or after induction day .

Bishop Vesey's seem to be right on the ball we have received the congratulatory letter and returned the acceptance forms. My Ds as also received a personalised postcard from the headmaster which we thought was a marvellous gesture besides this we have already attended an organised open day on Wednesday where we given a tour of the school and a fine speech by the headmaster on the merits of the school which was applauded by those attending.

We received a lack from FW a couple of days after the offers!

There was a little Of congratulations for my DS which I thought was a nice touch.

There was a health form to return, along with a letter regarding language preferences and an acceptance slip to be returned to the school. The letter advised if we went a SAE with our reply, they would confirm receipt.

I sent everything with the SAE last Saturday and received a confirmation slip from the school on tues or weds.

Hi - did you pop them in the post? - if so, if it were me, I'd phone the school, just for peace of mind.

Hi Wakthar,

I have spoken to LEA and they said CH will contact you directly.

I wasn't going to take any chance so I rang CH and they did confirm the above was true!

We forgot to put a SAE in our acceptance letter to CH but they reassured me that the Head Teacher is very organised and would have definitely not misplaced my acceptance form. Its all on his desk!

Robotboy.

Yes, same here, forgot to enclose a SAE for reply.
I guess as long as you send back the acceptance letters within the time specified, then everything should be ok.

I might still give CH a ring on Monday just for reassurance!! LOL

Still haven't received anything from Handsworth Grammar School. Apparently they're sending letters after the Easter holidays.

:?

That is a long time to wait. Is that going to be the acceptance form you need to fill in and send back? I thought it had to be in by 18th March....today??

I filled in the acceptance slip from Birmingham City Council, sent it in last week. Haven't had any confirmation yet, that apparently comes after the Easter break.
