This is the first time I have written, the 11 plus has been such an emotional experience for all of us that I really feel the need to share. My daughter did not make it. Her scores were NV 125, V 128 and then maths 113. She was gutted . The head teacher put in for an appeal but it was rejected . Apparently her work did not reflect grammar school standard. This i find confusing as her levels in year 5 were : writing 5c, reading 5c and maths 4a/5c. She had been doing level 5 maths work in her classes. So now we are in limbo, should we appeal again or not. We are in Tonbridge, where I hear from so many forums on this site that there are hundreds of children who have got the eleven plus , without GS.
I would really appreciate opinions from people. My daughter is keen to even appeal to Invicta in maidstone (which would be a very long journey) Does anyone have an opinion on Hill view school ? It seems like a lovely school but will it challenge and push. Our daughter def has a hunger and thirst for knowledge, she wants to learn. Throughout school her levels have geered us to believe she would make gammar school.........
Can anyone advise from experience
