That's about it really. I don't know anyone who has received a waiting list offer for Newstead or St Olaves's.
Any info welcome.

Hi Lucy,

I'm from Rehab!

I am waiting for Newstead too! Bromley LEA are terrible and not very helpful; they told me on Monday that they are reconciling the lists this week for all the schools as, as at the Thursday before Easter 5th April about 20% of parents had yet to send their slips in. 20%!!!!!!!!

The lists will then be sent to the schools. NW will get theirs next week. NW offered to all girls down to 220 - the number was well in excess of places available - to allow for declines and children who were offered a higher preference (not NW).

Those girls with 219 are ALL first in the waiting list. IF the list moves they will ALL be offered a place. I do not know how many girls are at 219.


Hope this helps.

TM

Hi tired mum, I am waiting for olave's.

I know the scond round of offers went out for the non selectives in Bromley this week but didn't realise the selectives offered again only after 1st of May.

The Newstead system is very different to st O's. Places are offered in rank order to those that placed the school first on their CAF/SIF at St O's. The maths test is used as a tie breaker to stop a bunch of children having the same ranking.

Good luck, it sems such a long time ago since they actually sat the test.

That's interesting. When I telephoned on Monday the LEA did not say they were sending out 2nd round offers this week. They just said they were doing a reconciliation. Why is it that Bexley is so helpful and Bromley are not! On a number of occasions (I keep finding some excuse to call them - that desparate for news) I have been given conflicting stories.

Does it mean that they LEA now know where you are in the waiting list - whether it is for selective or non-selective? Kent have been able to tell you weeks ago. I got a 2nd round offer from Bexley 26th March. Bromley???????????????

I would think that after may 1st the school would be able to say where you are on the list.

It's strange looking at the rest of the board how different areas have different ways of issuing second round offfers.

Bexley are quick off the mark.

Hi Lucy,

Thought you were the 'Guest' Well done to your son you must be pleased - a great weight off your mind. Putting off ringing the school as I fear that they will tell me that not only is the school full it is over it's PAN!!!!! That would just be my luck!

Ho Hum... Great news for you and yours though :D

Seeing your post I took a deep breath and rang the school (what is it they say about curiosity???) Ended up crying on the phone! (I'm a 42 year old graduate and head of department!!!!)


Oh well - appeal it is then!
