I have a query and concern regarding an appeal that I have made in Birmingham.
I have twin boys who sat the 11plus exam and one has been offered a place at handsworth (second choice) and on waiting list for Bishop Vesey.
The second did not do at all as well as expected, we later found out that he had been impacted by organisation issues and disagreements between the venue staff and parents arguing on the day of the exam. The scene caused a lot of distress on many children. We did have the impact lasting way beyond the exam day.
However my issue is that, twin 1 maybe offered a place at Bishop Vesey soon, this is good as it is close to where we live. However there maybe a possibility that twin 2 gets a place in handsworh through appeal.
I do not want to split the two up, but there is also a possibility that twin 2 may not get a place at handsworth and will have to end up going to a local comp.
Also if I accept Bishop Vesey for Twin 1, then in September twin 2 gets a place in Handsworth would I be able to send both to handsworth?
This is all really confusing and causing a lot of stress for everyone involved.
Any suggestions would be great.
