Yamin151. No safety net school? Uh-oh. What is the plan then? Twins plus school entrance equals stress doesn't it? We have a safety net comprehensive luckily for us, but the thought of battling with them for seven more years to get some challenge and appropriate academic expectations makes my heart sink. The pushy parent crown weighs very heavy on my head.
We have 5 schools listed, but behind the grammars the other three are none them a 'guaranteed', that would only be the local comp which we didn't like, others are local catholic (though we are not) and more distant secondaries. I guess we hope! It's only one child as other should be fairly safely in first choice, and other would have been last year too.
Homeschool and waiting list?
Hard, this parenting lark isn't it?
By contrast I do not want the less sure twin to be in too stressful an environment.
