Because people can apply to fresh schools in Kent from today, in some cases where they live closer (or have higher scores in West Kent) they will go ahead of others who have been patiently sitting on waiting lists.
Although this new system has faults, it will work best in East Kent where a few grammar schools are full (Simon Langton, Dover Girls, Manwoods) and others have spaces, enabling children to gain places in schools with vacancies. If your child hasn't passed you can also apply for a fresh grammar school. They will be turned down and you can then appeal! Not recommended unless scores are reasonably close!
Good Morning Peter,
Now I'm confused
What is this about reallocation day? I thought that if you wanted to apply to a school you did not put on your CAF you could do so after 23rd March; however if places are being reallocated on 27th March what chance do you have? I'm after a place at Wilmington Girls.
Well I'm still not sure about this reallocation lark! I got a massive surprise yesterday when I got home: I have been offered a place at my No2 choice school (If you have read any of my previous posts you will know I got choice number 6 on 2nd March - not a happy bunny) letter dated 26th March and offer is from a Bexley School.
What's going on?
OK so it is a happy result for me and mine but what does this mean for everyone else. I was Out of Area - by a VERY long way and had originally hoped my No1 daughter would get one of the 180 places (deluded
as it turned out she missed by 3 marks).
If you know what they are doing Peter can you tell us?
