To follow up on my previous post, I have read the Appeal guide on this forum and also read again the admissions notes from Herts. I understand that I will need to accept the place offered to my daughter (likely to be AHS) but if she has changed her mind and want to go to Chesham Grammar, I would need to go on the waiting list.
I am unclear on the following questions:
1. Can you accept one place and go on the waiting list for another school at the same time - even if the place you have been allocated is your first preference?
2. Do you have to state why you decide to go on the waiting list of the other school? I will need to be creative there, I am not sure that 'daughter has changed her mind and decided to be with her friends' might tick some boxes!
3. Should I go on the waiting list and also appeal, or should I keep the appeal as last chance?
Sorry about all the above. It is very embarrassing
and I felt quite sheepish about the whole thing. DD will be happy in either school I am sure, but she did confess this morning that she was thinking more towards Chesham for quite a while, but didn't want to mention it to us as she didn't want to upset us, she 'want us to be happy'. Bless.
Thanks for your help, it is really much appreciated
