Just wanted to wish Good Luck to all your DC who are taking the Kent tests next week.

I have just been reading the posts from all you stressed out parents. I know exactly how you feel having been through it all earlier this year. However, DD now happily settling in to life at new grammar school - there is life after the 11+, hang on in there! :)

Just wanted to say thank you for the best wishes, Sam's Mum. A thoughtful gesture.

I would like to echo this and also wish everyone Good Luck and hope that ultimately every child gets placed in the right school, whether that be a selective school or not.

Roll on Friday pm........

Can't believe we are coming to the end of the first stage. It has been on my mind for so long. I have rarely felt so stressed out as now.

Good luck to all the Kent children for tomorrow and all their stressed parents! It's going to be hard thinking about them in the morning - need to keep really busy!

I am rather an emotional person and every year I have a lump in my throat when I see the Y6 children standing in teh lines at school clutching their teddies (they're allowed to bring them in for the 11+). I dread to think what I will be like tomorrow when I actually have a child sitting the 11+. Any tips for maintaining a stiff upper lip?!

Yes, its always a good idea to wear sunglasses. I think the weather forecast is saying we should have sun tomorrow and Friday. Thats what I am planning to do - sunglasses hide a multitude of sins!!

We have to wait until Saturday for it to be all over as we are out of county. I will be so relieved when it is all over as this is my third and final child to go through the 11+.
