Have just accepted late offer of a place at SCGSG. Obviously school now closed for summer - does anyone have experience of this? Will I get any info over the summer or do we just turn up on September 3rd??? Thanks.

I'm sure there will be someone at the school office - if not now then certainly in the next couple of weeks. Have you got acceptance confirmation in writing?

Would it be worth asking someone at the school's LEA (is this BCC, or is BCC just your LEA?) whether you actually have to speak to someone at the school, or whether the LEA does everything necessary? And if you do still have to contact the school, would the LEA have a direct number for the right person?

In the absence of more concrete information, you could always annoy them at the school by turning up nice and early on August 13th (AS / A level results day), there will definitely be staff around then.

Please don't go to the school on A level results day - extra people won't be welcome!

By all means e-mail the school but don't go in on that day or GCSE results day without an appointment.

I wasn't being entirely serious! But I do think that authorities should make it absolutely clear what one has to do regarding offers during the holidays - logically, a response through the agent informing one of the offer should suffice (since they obviously are still working) but I suspect that I would still have a niggling feeling that I might manage to leave my child with no place at all come September (not to mention, no doubt some kind of official info regarding uniform, first day of term etc would be nice :) ).

Toadmum - had realised you weren't serious about results day but loved the comment, made me chuckle!
Have swapped uniform today - still feels a bit surreal.

Had a call from lovely lady in the school office on 30/07 - just needed confirmation from LEA as school hadn't been informed yet. Message on my phone today saying info being posted out, so all good - I will stop fretting! :D
