Ok well congrats to all those who are waking with a smile this am
and thoughts are with those who are not so happy-this blessed 11+ business is god awful IMHO!
DS did well and had a ranked 134 at Pates and scored 237 at STRS.
I think we will put Pates as first on our CAf followed by Tommys.
This is really only due to the transport issue and the fact that it will be easier/shorter for him to get to Pates(should he be lucky enough to get a place eventually!)and he knows x2 children already on the bus.
I personally still feel STRS MAY be better but we have to consider the logistics....
I realise that we have nothing to lose my placing Pates first and if unsuccessful then Tommys becomes our effective first choice,but come March and allocation day IF 14 havent dropped out for various reasons...will we be allocated Tommys?Then do we accept that or do you wait to see if anyone else "drops out"as they work down the list?I am a little confused by this as I know you only get offered one school...so how does this work?
And the million dollar question is how long will it take to possibly get down to rank 134?
I just dont want to be hanging on(if thats what you do?)come the time that everyones thoughts turn to their new school.
Pates would be nice(logistically)but Id rather KNOW what was happening come the end of sprig iyswim?
Im just unsure of how they work down the list and when you get notified that thats the school youve been allocated!
sorry...heads in a whir over this!Silly,I know,as I appreciate how lucky we are!and DS is still...cool as a cucumber and not remotely concerned...oh to be 10
