Hi All I just need some help in understanding the best course of action re appeals.

My lad has received the dreaded news today of an unsuccessful application, so obviously I'm looking at our options. A strange note from the Local authority states the following;

If you have been allocated a school of Rank 10, this indicates that XXXXXXXXX Council has been unable to meet any preferences expressed and has had to offer a place at the nearest school with places available.

does anyone know what the Rank 10 means?

cheers

Hi dadoflad,

It looks like a rank 10 school is one that you didn't put of your application form. If the LA couldn't offer a school on your application then they would offer you the nearest school with places available.

Have you been offered a school you didn't apply to?

No we applied for one faith grammar out of area then our two local comps mainly because we were a little behind the curve on the whole 11+ situation.

Perhaps it is a code they use when liaising with other LA. If you think it could be pertinent you could query it with the local authority.

Lots of appeals help on here. Its pretty hard to win a St Ambrose appeal and they are not terribly accomodating I am afraid. If you decide to do so, you should call the school to take forward. Being so close to the pass mark, I think they will have conducted a preliminary review.
