Hello, apologies for the school-specific question but my son scored 408 in the Kent test (VR 140, NVR 140, Maths 128) and we are wondering whether it's worth the pain of appealing, if anyone has local knowledge or experience. Skinners' admit on score and this year are offering places to scorers of 414 and above. They have places for 115 boys.
Notwithstanding the 100% in VR and NVR, my son's strongest subject is actually maths (100% in SATS, glowing school reports, etc.) and we can't work out what happened. We can only consider it a 'blip'. We are getting the full facts/evidence of his past school work, for the appeal.
I doubt it makes any difference but aside from his academic abilities, he is also a great fit for Skinners' - creative, musical, very hard working, self-motivated, spent 10 months on a round-the-world trip in 2010/11, and is a star rugby player.
All and any help, comments or opinions gratefully received.
Thank you very much.
