I accepted my second choice school online on March 1st (we are on waiting list for 1st choice) i also received confirmation via email of this acceptance.
Today i received a letter from the sexond choice school (HGS) asking me to fill in a slip of to accept/decline and that we had 7 more days to accept/decline place!
I will offcourse do this but my understanding was that by doing it online should be enough? Maybe there is an error on their systems as they also stated a wrong date of birth too! This has me worried!
Hi Shnshn & others viewing this:
I just wanted to say that small fry was offered CHG on March 1st but it was not possible to accept this offer online with Birmingham City Council eadmission service.
I've double checked the letter they sent - which said:Accepting the place offered
If you have been offered a place at a Birmingham academy or school you must return the tear off slip direct ot that academy or school by Wednesday 16 March 2016.
I just thought I'd post this in case anyone else read Shnshn's post and had a panic that they should have accepted the offer online. It seems that not everybody could (even if they applied online - as we did).
I know it should be o.k. and I have confirmation stamp from CHG which they sent back with my stamped addressed envelope. But Shnshn's post sure gave me a panic this evening that I'd forgot to do something.
Here's hoping this all works out.
I'll go have a lie down now.
