Stroud High School 'appealers' know if they have been successful or not.
Well, both Stroud High & Marling appeals letters will probably have gone out on Friday night / Saturday morning, so may have hit the letter boxes. Not sure if the clerk sent them first class, but I hope she did.
I did hear from 'my' clerk of one parent asking "if a place offered by appeal was not accepted, could they have it?". I think the answer was 'no', although, of course, it could constitute a material change of facts (one more place at the balancing stage of the appeal) so maybe they could launch a re-appeal. Then it would be a different panel and success rather depends on the strength of their appeal in the first place. If it was for a really bright child who just, just missed a place, and was oh-so-close to winning an appeal, then they stand a chance. If it was because the evidence produced stated that they were not actually that bright (well, not bright enough for a grammar), despite good mitigating circumstances, then I doubt if it would succeed a second time either.
I was pleased with how 'my' appeals went, and came out smiling. Obviously sad for those we turned down, but happy for those we allowed.
