Thanks both! I am not too confident about movement on the waiting list though as, from the Borough of Sutton's published figures from last year (see link below), Wilsons offered 203 places as they realise a certain amount of offers won't be accepted. Therefore, 24 offers would have to be rejected to free up one space and as I understand it that would be offered to a Sutton boy and we are in Croydon. I will however ring up and find out where my DS is on the waiting list. Do I ring Sutton or the school? https://www.sutton.gov.uk/CHttpHandler. ... =23225&p=0
My DS is a gentle boy and not interested in rugby or football. He loves badminton though. He is quietly confident and very popular, but not at all a 'roughty-toughty' boy, so maybe he would be better off at WCGS rather than us persuing Wilsons. Does anyone have any helpful advice for me please?
Thank you to everyone who has contributed on this forum, which has been invaluable.
