Thanks Sally-Anne, we're 2.2 miles straight line distance to WHS and even closer to SWBGS so on those figures we should at least have a chance.
That puts you in an interesting position, based on our experience last year.
If (and that remains a big IF, of course), you manage to overturn FCO and then win the non-qualification appeal, you are very likely indeed to rise to first place on the waiting list for both schools. As there is usually some movement in the distances for further allocation rounds, that should bode well.
If it doesn't, you would of course need to go to an over-subscription appeal. Last year it seemed that many O/S panels took the view that where an IAP had overturned a Review decision, the child should be returned to the position that they would otherwise have been in on Allocations Day (1st/3rd March).
As a result, several schools were forced into admitting a number of children over their admission number (PAN).
I would certainly be hopeful that panels would take the same view this year.
