Will appreciate all advice please and wonder if DD have any chance. OOB & scored 419, missed Newsteadwood by 3 marks (NVR, 121 & VR, 100) - 13th position on waiting list. Dartford was 1st on CAF, followed by Newstead Wood & Townley Girls. She dreams of Dartford and has always been her preferred choice. I fear the fact that 1st DD is in Year 7 in Townley will weaken our appeal. We live in Eltham.

My first experience at appeal - scared & confused where to start from. Based on advice on this forum, which I found very helpful, I have spoken to our Head Teacher and she said I should come in when I received all Appeal forms (Darford & Newstead Wood).

DD is being on level 6 in maths, as the school has applied for her to sit level 6 in her Math SAT. Level 5 in Literacy.

All help will be highly appreciated.

I don't see why - it is open to you to argue why your child is better suited to the school you're appealing for.

Besides, an appeal panel won't necessarily know about the sibling. See this item about the CAF and whether the panel is likely to have access to it (and therefore to any information you have given there):

Could someone please confirm if advisable to quote and show DD's mark for 11+ in Boroughs she performed exceedingly well, to school appeal in another Borough appeal in a non-qualification appeal (3 marks off cut off).
Thanks.

Thanks Ettiene, DD now has a place at NW. Didn't have to go through the appeal. Still awaiting result of DGG's appeal. Thanks all for all your support. I've found the forum really helpful.
