This was in the CCHS thread for this year if it helps.
I am now losing my patience - I have just called ECC to find that my daughter has gone from position 10 to 11!
A late applicant, where the parents had made no application before, has been added to the list where the parents, I was told, did not meet any deadlines. How is this possible, for the Essex schools at least?
I assume we cannot apply late to another Essex grammar, i.e. Colchester, where my daughter's score would have been well above the offer day cut off? Or can we?
I am rather perturbed to say the least....my daughter scored very highly, enough to get into any of the boys or girls grammars other than CCHS (Chelmsford).
I understand that Chelmsford is more accessible in georgraphic terms, hence why it is so hard to secure a place, but maybe there should be an Essex catchment to stop far away parents from poaching places in our area where our taxes are spent and we have forked out to buy houses....
