Hi all, it's been a fair while since I've been on here as we've been in the the long, hard process of moving house, deep joy!!
Hope everyone's well!!
Right, I'm just after any scraps of good news really, I feel quite a lot of despair right now!!
We moved into Kent a couple of weeks ago & I'm trying to find out any information on whether or not it's even worth applying to any grammar schools anymore. DS passed his 11+ in Bucks but we never got to find out if he'd won a place as we moved just weeks too early & obviously no longer needed to be considered there. We now need to apply for both Kent & Medway grammar schools as both have the nearest grammar schools to us, (we're situated in Minster).
DS is sitting his Kent test this week & then his Medway test in 2 weeks.
This is a lot to put him through if it's not at all worth it but with allocations going through as we speak, there's absolutely no way to see if there are going to be any places anywhere. At the moment there obviously shows no spaces (according to both councils), however noone can say whether there ever will be. I just wondered in anyones experience whether it's worth us going ahead & trying anyway & maybe getting in on appeal if DS does pass his tests or whether people don't ever really get places very often in our circumstances?
I fully realise that noone can give us a definite answer by any means but I'm just wondering if there's any hope in anyones guess???
Many thanks in anticipation
