At rank 331 we have felt no certainty about his chances though we have been told he should be ok.
From the admissions booklet NHGS went to rank 336 last year. Not much longer to wait.
Does anyone know how the re-allocation system works and how stressful it is?
Once people start declining places they can be re-allocated to those on the waiting list. They will be offered in the same way as before. (highest ranking). posting.php?mode=reply&f=24&t=36210
Parents who are not happy with the school place they have been offered can request the name of their child to be added to a re-allocation list for school places which may become available after 3 March 2014 for secondary schools and 16 April 2014 for primary schools.
If re-allocation is requested at a higher preference school than has been allocated, the place offered can be retained.
If re-allocation is requested at a lower preference school than has been offered, or a school which was not originally indicated on the application form, the higher preference school must be given up. (Please note that giving up a place does not guarantee re-allocation to another school and the original place offered will be re-allocated to another child).
If a school has been offered which was not the original preference, parents can request re-allocation to all preferred schools or a school which was not originally indicated on the application form.
The deadline for the initial round of re-allocation requests is 17 March 2014 for secondary schools and 30 April 2014 for primary schools.
Parents will be notified of the outcome in writing by 31 March 2014 for secondary schools and 14 May 2014 for primary schools.
Re-allocation requests received after 17 March 2014 for secondary schools and 30 April 2014 for primary schools will be dealt with in order of date received.
Please note that information regarding the outcome of re-allocations will not be given over the telephone.
The reallocation (waiting) list will be maintained until the end of the first term of the academic year beginning September 2014.
