Anyone have any positive experience that they would like to share regarding over subscription appeals, and any tips at all?

Hi Frustrated,
You might get a better response to this if you post it under Appeals or the specific area you are interested in.
FWIW we had a successful oversubscription appeal last year, an account of which you will find with others in the feedback sticky in the Appeals section. The Appeals Q&A which you can access from the home page also has plenty of good advice including some area-specific information.

The main thing is to focus on why the school is the best one for your child - e.g. specialisms, ethos, siblings, friendship groups, transport arrangements etc. and support it with as much evidence as you can. Ultimately you have to show that your child's need to go there outweighs any prejudice to the school that may be caused by admitting an extra child.

Best of luck!
