Hello,

My DS scored 110 in Slough consortium test and scored 130 in Buckinghamshire test. He has been always in set 1 is his class throughout, year 5 report being Execellant grades for all subjects. On test day, he mentioned he started filling in the answer sheet incorrectly initially and after 6-7 questions he realised the mistake, suspect caused stress as he has to rub out those answers and time could have been running for rest of questions.

Looking for advise and apprecite opinions what could be chances of successful appeal at Langley Grammer School.

Thanks

Welcome to Appeals! :)

Have you read the Q&As? For example - "Chances of success"?

Thanks Etienna for the quick response.

I've gone through this whole appeals Q&A page many times the whole night :(, unfortunately couldn't find information of Langley Grammer School.

I live in Local Addmission Area of LGS and I'm quite confident of making case on capability front and also hopeful (fingers crossed) having backing/support of HT (not discussed or talked yet though).

Appreciate if someone can share their experience of appeal in such a narrow miss situation at Langley Grammer School specifically, and other slough Grammer schools generally please.

Thanks

I have heard of people appealing and getting place in Buckinghamshire but not for Langley Grammar School. It's such a close score, I wonder they consider and give a chance in appeal.

Appeals are governed by a national Code, so they are basically the same everywhere in procedural terms.

Even if someone were to describe their experiences of a particular school last year, it might be a completely different appeal panel this year with a different attitude (more/less sympathetic).

However, where there is ranking, and intense competition for places, I think appeal decisions are likely to be stricter.

You can ask the school for the data you want:
