Hi- Does anyone know how many boys are on the Skinners' waiting list this year and what the movement was on the first waiting list allocations?
I know the pass mark was 407 and our DS had two marks less than that but wasn't allocated a place in this cut .

Hello

I have spoken to Skinners today and was told that only 2 boys were given places yesterday off the 1st waiting list. There are still boys with 407 waiting for a place. My son scored two less also.

Hope thats helps.

I know two boys who had accepted places at Skinners but who have now been offered a place at a closer school and so will be freeing up their spots at Skinners.

And if it's any help to you, my boy with a score of 392 is, after the April shuffle at place no.56 on the list :)

I can't comment on this year's intake but from the September 2010 intake the score had dropped from 410 with a few 409s on initiall allocation to a child on 404 being 5th on the waiting list prior to the start of term. I think there is hope if your DS is only 2 points below the cut off.

Yes - he got in on first allocation. Sorry, my post may have seemed to imply I was talking about my DS but it was another child I know.

Best of luck to you and I hope your DS gets a place - it's a great school and DS is really enjoying himself there.
