So those positions of the academic and music lists are from last year (September 2013 entry)? That waiting list will remain open until the end of the school year, but it's unlikely that many places will become available in the next couple of months. You'll have to ask them whether your younger son's place means your older son can be added to their sibling list.

Your elder son has now become a reverse sibling. At our school DAO reverse siblings go to the top of the waiting list the day that the younger sibling is allocated a place. You need to contact Watford Boys and see if that is also the case at the school. I know several students who have joined the school as a reverse sibling when their younger sibling has gained a place.

This also happened with someone I know who's younger dd was accepted at SCD. The older was then also brought in to the school under the sibling rule. Definitely check in to it.
