My son passed his 11 plus but was offered a school 22 miles out of area, although still a grammar, we are not accepting this place!!. We have the full backing of his primary school in appeal for a place at MGS, our first choice on our CAF and have gone onto their waiting list as well. Has anyone experience of getting into MGS on appeal and any tips on the best way to appeal. Thank you.

Hi 2nd time around

Sorry no practical advice but advise from forum seems to be accept place offered but appeal as well for preferred choice, the reason being if appeal fails at least you have a school!

Best of luck :)

Thank you for quick reply, my problem being that the grammar he has been offered he cannot get to as he would need to be up at 5.30am in the morning so no point accepting, how can they call this a offer!. Will have to wait and see what appeal and waiting list brings.

appeals need to be why you need a place at your preferred aschool , rather tahn why you don;t want teh offerred school, so maybe stress the positives rather than the negatives.

have a look at the appeals section, it is really comprehensive and you will get loads of help.

Thank you, is that the main appeals section or is there one just for Kent.

Has anyone else in Kent been offered out of area schools that they cannot possibly get to? or anyone last year, if so what was the outcome.

have a look at the main appeals section first, then perhaos ask if anyone has personal exoerience.

Teh appeals Q & A is a good place to start. It is extremely comprehensive

Kentmedwayborder is in a similar position. They have been offered a school which would involve getting up at around 5.30am and home at 6.30am!
