I am really grateful for your advice and help.
KenR and Okanagan have been brilliant.
As this journey will now draw to a close, my story is perhaps worth sharing. DD had a wretched time 2 years ago scoring 179 and having to cope with dyslexia and her mother having biopsies.
Two years on, DS1 was given the option to leave it, but gave it his best shot almost wanting to do it for his mum and sister.
His mum is fine now and DD is flourishing at EHS. I know his fairytale ending would be to get into CHB; At 237, he may just do that but we know what a brilliant school FW is so hopefully job done.
I know we could not have done this without all of the advice from you. Far from "gloating" (as per another thread!) I have found the forum to be remarkably supportive, ably led by KenR and Okanagan.
I hope you are all successful on the 3rd. DD, was born premature weighing only 3Ibs and 3oz. and proves that even if it doesn't turn out to plan you can still make a real success of it, whatever hand your dealt.
