As long as you are confident that you meet the criteria to be allocated one of these schools, then you have done absolutely the right thing.

The best way is to put the schools in your order of preference. So if you prefer the HSs to the other GS put them above, as you have done.

oh so if I add another gs that dd DID pass the test for, if she got THAT place, would it affect our appeal to the gs we want her to go to?
I dont want them to say at the prefered school that we couldnt really have wanted it if we went for the other school
Am i making sense?

Always put your schools down in the genuine order of preference. If you put a grammar that your child didn't qualify for first, you won't get it but you'll be given choice number 2 if you meet that criteria. You accept that place so that you have a school place.
Then you can appeal to your first choice and, if you get it, you reject the one you have already been given.

Generally agree, but you may need to play the percentages. If you did not qualify (for selective) probably best not to put more than 1 or perhaps 2 selective schools on your CAF, unless you are absolutely certain you will get into your favoured non-selective. May also be best to select a least over-subscribed GS, rather than a difficult to get into GS.

thanks for all the helpful :D advice everyone.Been to another GS tonight and daughter likes this too!!!(cant cope anymore!!!)So think i am going to put first and second choice as grammar schools and third and fourth as HS!! As i understand GS will be turned down,hopefully she will be awarded a place at one of the HS which i will accept,then go to appeal for GS and wait for outcome!!!!???What happens if HS also turned down though!! this seems a bit of a gamble, you could in theory have to appeal for HS place as well!!!

You are then at the mercy of wherever the LEA wants to put you. Often the school nobody else wants to go to. So be careful.
