Hi all.

Has anyone appealed for selective/grammar school place in the past & it was upheld? If so was the appeal because of over subscription, catchment or anything else?

From your experiences does it matter where DC is ranked on waiting list or does it depend on the evidence of high academic ability which swings the ball to your side of the court?

What do you believe was The Key Factor/s that won or if you weren't fortunate, lost your appeal?

All stories welcome, long or short!

Absolutely not - admissions (which includes waiting lists) and appeals are two different processes. The Appeals Code states:
Quote:
Appeal panels must not take account of where the admission authority has placed a child on the waiting list.

What makes a Successful Appeal?
There are lots of do's and don't's in the Q&As. For example:

http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/appeal ... school#c10
http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/appeal ... school#c20
http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/appeal ... school#c21
http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/appeal ... school#c24

Herman has already mentioned the Q&As in your other thread - it would be worth reading them. (They also answer your question about waiting lists.)
