Hi, Ive just registered for the forum as my child has recently failed their 11+ exam. My child Head teacher has appealed against it but that has also failed.

I`m just wondering what my options are now, as my child has their heart set on going to a grammar school.

thank you for any advice

Thanks Bisky

presumably this was a headteachers review?

are you still able to appeal to a panel yourself?

What sort of scores did your DC get?

Thank you for your reply. Yes it was Headteachers review. Yes weve been told we can appeal. Scores were as follows :

Quote:
Outcome of Grammar Selection Tests

Standard score test 1 : 123

Standard score test 2 : 112

Total score 235

Required Grammar school standard : 236

Referral to Independent Assessment Board : Yes

Outcome of Independent Assessment Board : Not Grammar

Note that referral to the Independent Assessment Board is at the discretion of the primary school headteacher.



I really appreciate the help.

Ouch, ouch and ouch again. So very close.

Provided there is a realistic possibility of her gaining a place at your preferred school (or perhaps of winning an over-subscription appeal?), you need to start by reading the Appeal Q&A's, here: http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/appeals

In the meantime it helps if you can give us further information - predicted SATs, and CATs or other test results, general level of school reports, any extenuating circumstances, etc. For confidential information there is a facility to send that to us by email instead of posting on the forum: viewtopic.php?f=35&t=9907

There is more general guidance about how we can help you via this forum here: viewtopic.php?f=35&t=8255
