I know this may be a long shot but wondered whether anyone had any experience of appealing to Birkenhead Academy? How did the process go and what information were the panel looking for? And were you successful? We're facing the panel at the end of this month and any advice would be most welcome.

Hi there. To my knowledge this is the first year where there have been a material number of appeals for BHSA. I would suggest you ask around on the appeals section of the forum.

You need to remember that BHSA is essentially non-selective and so any appeals based on poor performance on the entrance test (due to toothache etc etc etc) which may be the stance for a Grammar School are unlikely to succeed. Again perhaps the appeals section can come up with other approaches?

Well, as the name Mirabelle apparently means "Lovely" or "Wonderous" or even "Wonderous Beauty", I'll let you off with that - might even adopt it :lol: (it's sooo me) 8)

Just to let you know our appeal failed. These things are sent to try us, I suppose, but thanks Maybelle for all you help, much appreciated. I assume the school has a waiting list so I'll ring Monday and see if we can be placed on there. You never know!
