I wonder if someone can help either via the forum or by pm ing me? My DS was fortunate enough to get into a grammar school which at the time he said he liked but now says he really doesn't want to go to. He is on the waiting list for St O's (our first choice).
From EXPERIENCE can anyone tell me if they do work their way down the waiting list all the way through to end of the Summer? Does the list move quite a bit at the beginning of this process (ie when the cut off date for acceptance of offers mid March takes place) and then slow down and then move again a lot in July and August when people are committed to their secondary school and won't change their mind? Is there realistically much point in phoning them and asking and making a "nice nuisance" of ourselves on a regular basis!? Or am I clutching at straws??
How do you sell a perfectly good 3rd choice grammar school to your DS when you both want something else? By the way second choice we didn't get into because of distance.
And yes, I do realise how fortunate we are that we have a very good local gs and on the waiting list for an exceptionally good gs so don't need to know that!
Any help or advice would be great please??
