The letter has arrived - none of our choices were given - we have been allocated the local failing school!

Oh well, on the road to appeals.

We will be appealing on over-subscription, and hopefully have good arguements.

I will be back later for advice.[/b]

Hi Snowdrops

Sorry to hear about the " allocation" - what a pain.
Have they given you much info about the numbers etc for RGS? ie how many have not got in on distance??

Fingers still crossed
Herman

No information at all just the standard letter saying which school was allocated and standard appeal application forms.

Should we have this information automatically, or do I need to request it?

Herman, one of our defences will be cholesteatoma, our consultant is more than willing to write to the appeals section (she has it in both ears and has had 5 operations to correct it) she now has a small hearing loss - do we find out about class sizes from each individual school, or can we get it through the LEA office?

So sorry Snowdrops.

Did your DD pass the 11+/get in on appeal? If so, they must offer you a grammar place and surely none of them are 'failing'?! I only ask because RGS was mentioned in a reply to you.

Apologies, if I have got the wrong end of the stick.

ATM - my daughter scored highly in the 11+, but we are out of catchment - hence no allocation.

RGS (for us) is Ripon Grammar School.

Hi ATM
North Yorks is odd as it is a huge county with only 2 relatively small areas (centred on Skipton and Ripon) where there are grammar schools. All the rest of the patch is non selective. Both areas get a lot of interest from outside their catchments, Skipton from West Yorks / East Lancs etc and Ripon from surrounding parts of N Yorks partic Harrogate where there are some excellnet schools (non selective but with very tight catchments / faith requirements) and some ahem not such good schools. Snowdrops is desperately trying to avoid the allocated school........
