So, what I really want your opinions on is have I done the right thing?
You haven't necessarily done the wrong thing - provided you do move the focus on to the school you want.
I feel it's important that the panel know my feelings.
Logically, it's even more important that they understand why the school you want will best suit your son.
This is why they're hearing your appeal, and this is what most of your case ought to be about.http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/appeal ... -school#c2
