I am so nervous, Christophers appeal is tomorrow. I keep going over and over in my head what I will say. I start off putting things in the right order,
keep adding things in I feel I should say, then taking them out thinking it would be better not to!!!!?
Christophers teacher advised against any coaching and said to put three grammer schools down, which I did. He failed by one point. His teacher
said he would never give this advice again. I am not blaming the teacher, it was my choice, but I do wonder, what if.... In the appeal papers, TWBG say on four pages worth that they are full to bursting, what chance do we have? why have an appeal? Christopher has worked so hard, he is a nervous, shy and polite child. He is Head Boy and representative of the
Sevenoaks Talented and Gifted (STAG). I will go tomorrow, as I have to,
but I feel he stands no chance at all......if only he had had some outside tuition, as all the other children who passed did. I have only myself to blame.

Just wanted to wish you all the best for tomorrow. Have just been through the whole process and wanted you to know that there is sanity on the other side!! I'm sure you have done everything that can possibly be done - just go in there and give it your best shot!! Whatever the outcome, your son is a very lucky boy to have you!! Good luck again.

Do let us know you you get on! A friend is also appealing today, for the same school, who also missed by one point. You are doing the best you can and I hope you're successful. Your son sounds very deserving of a place. Good Luck!
