Hi, I know of one girl who was going to Ribston but was successful for Denmark Rd, so that's one.

Good luck on the waiting list, my daughter is going to Ribston and had a great time at the induction day.

So sorry to hear your disappointing news Wilmotclan. You must feel devastated at the moment.
Recently, there have been a lot of posts on this forum which suggest that those children who do not make it into the grammar school do fantastically well at the schools they end up going to. I am sure that your daughter will continue to make you proud.
I hope that you feel more positive soon.

Wilmotclan, why have you only just found out the result of your appeal? I too thought most people had found out a few weeks ago. Poor you having to wait all this time.

Sorry for your news, I know how you feel as we failed our appeal too :(

Have you had any information regarding whether they are taking anyone from the waiting list now?
