Unfortunately our appeal for GS failed last month. I had accepted a place at Inde School for my DD, but having reviewed that decision have decided my DD will have a lot more opportunities at the local comprehensive where she will be put into a class according to ability right from entry, whereas the Inde School don't do this. In addition, I have another child at the Independent in question and have not been happy with progress. I am also not happy with the politics that seem to go on, whereby a child is favoured simply because their parents are paying more money into the school.
Help? I have lost my deposit of just over Â£1,000, which is fine and totally expected, But I have now received a letter from the bursar to say that they will shortly be invoicing me for the first term's fees too, which is another Â£3,000. I am sure they have probably already filled the vacant position as they keep a waiting list, surely they can't expect me to pay another Â£3,000. Help, please can anyone advise, I literally have felt sick since reading the letter.
