Has there been any movement on the waiting lists yet? Has anyone now been offered a place?

Which school are you on the waiting list for?

Parents can make a late application. So if your DS scored 342 you would have thought that you would be allocated KEGS or CRGS. However, not this year. So a parent may make a late application to WHSB and slot in at position number 1, thus moving everyone else down a place.

There is a sticky with waiting list info which may help.

Just spoke to admissions at Southend and they say the waiting lists won't change until at least next Monday.

Has anyone heard anything yet? Southend schools line really won't tell me anything since the admissions day w/l position.

I know that ultimately we just need to wait it out, but waiting until today was painful enough, and now they're saying call back if I haven't heard anything by the end of next week.

DD was 4th on list on admissions day, and having since found out about the fact that others can apply after this date, I'd just really like to get a feel for where she might be now, but neither Essex or Southend schools line can/will tell me :(

Just wondered if anyone else had heard, as it might provide a rough idea of any movement.

Hi Mojojo, I rang Southend yesterday and they told me to call on Monday. This time last year the top couple of girls had already been told they had places. There's a thread on here called waiting list on about page 14 and you can see when the girls got offered last year. Southend told me last week that if the girls are OCC they tell their local authority and then it's up to the local authrity to send a letter out (which can take a little time). Also apparently they don't update their system quickly so your DD could have been offered a place already but unless you happen to get the right lady on the phone at the right time, nobody else knows.

I know this doesn't really help but last year about 25 SHGS places were offered so no 4 on the list should definitely get in. My DD is 2nd on the list.

Thank you both - Buddy, I think you may be the mum that spoke to my DD on offer day :)

I did call Essex right after Southend today, as I thought that perhaps any communication would go from Southend to them, but the chap I spoke to really didn't seem sure what he was doing! (he just kept telling me that they didn't keep Southend waiting lists, but not really understanding what I was asking him).

Thanks for the reassurance - the "late application" thing just really knocked my optimism. It seems like this is an unprecedentedly tough year for the other schools, which I fear might lead to many late Southend applications.

I will try to be patient for another week!

Essex wouldn't know about Southend schools waiting lists so ring Southend to find out about Southend schools and Essex for Essex schools. But the offer will be from Essex of course for Southend schools if you are an Essex resident. You might find out whether you have got a place before Essex knows by phoning Southend.
