Hi, firstly I had absolutely no idea which title to post this query under or indeed whether it's even appropriate to this site, but many people have such good knowledge of how school systems work (creep, but true
) that I hoped it would be okay.
I'm being practical and starting to look at comp options just in case the unthinkable happens. Our local comp is a no go no matter what sadly, so we're having to look much further afield as this school is our only usual option here. Our first choice of comp has, as one of it's main criteria (the second after children in care in fact), a possible sports or music scholarship, our DD hasn't got the musical knowledge however I'm wondering how advanced in a sport a child has to be to qualify? DD has been a county champion in gymnastics at the age of 8 and although has had a break from it for 18months due to us relocating where there were no local clubs she has now just taken it up again in a different form (acro), she also attends karate, can swim well and came first in a regional competition in trampolining (albeit at a basic level). Is this anywhere near enough to try on, does anyone think? Or am I barking completely up the wrong tree?
