I have been watching with a broken heart my DS has been going through **** trying to understand why he wasn’t good enough to get a spot. Today was a great day getting the nod that he would be offered a place at HGS. I am lost for words it is so hard to comprehend what we go through just to see our loved ones succeed in life I hope all those who are close to 205 will also feel the happiness we do today.
Congratulations to you and your DS, Harj1234. It is a great relief after such a long wait.

Really pleased for you that your son has got the place you coveted, but please do not equate getting a grammar school place with success in life.

Success comes in many different forms - often related to hard work (which can happen in any school) - and a lack of hard work can lead to failure (even in a grammar school). Some people equate success with money - I personally equate success with happiness and health.

My point is that success is absolutely NOT defined by whether a child gets into a grammar school or not.


I like what you've just said.

As a teacher I echo every word you've just spoken.


I echo your words. Consider Harj1234's words as excited parent's words after a long wait :) .

Hopefully he’ll get his place before term starts, but if not I would imagine there would be at least 2 no shows come September. All the best.


Absolutely. There's some shuffling at the start of term. Hoping though you hear something sooner as it's difficult in limbo.
