Is anybody in Bexley getting twitchy about whether or not their 11+ results will actually turn up on the 15th? Our postal service is diabolical at the moment - a birthday card posted on 24 September turned up on 30th; another card posted on 26 September still hasn't arrived. We have such a short time frame between getting the results and submitting our CAF it would be awful if this was reduced further because of the postal strike.

I don't believe Hill View are in the habit of giving out results over the phone so I'm not sure what I will do if the letter doesn't appear on time!

Well as they haven't got our email addresses, I reckon they'd send the results to school who would distribute letters at the end of the day via the kids.

I guess they'd do something like that if there was a blanket strike but that's not what's happening. As I understand it, industrial action is patchy/localised and seems to be affecting some areas but not others.

On the Bexley council website it just says that if there are disruptions to postal service then alternative arrangements will be made. I suppose nearer the time they will say what the alternative arrangements are.

Just spoke to Admissions and they aren't anticipating any problems with results arriving on time as only post going through central London is affected by the industrial action - not local post. Now I'll have to find something else to worry about!

Is anyone else finding the wait till next week difficult? I know it's not that long now and we can't change the outcome, but I just want to know!!

Awful isn't it? I actually dreamt about getting the letter last night! I'm delighted we now get results before we submit our CAF, but under the old system I managed to switch off after the tests until a week or two before the results/school allocations were sent out in March. Three weeks just isn't long enough to switch off.

But believe me, the worst part of all will be waiting for the postman on Thursday! Ours doesn't come until late morning/lunchtime so I expect Thursday morning to be a complete write-off. Last time we did this some friends didn't get their post until about 3pm!
