DS as just started in year 7 at BGS. He says that there is a child that the school was expecting who has decided not to come to the school. As of yesterday they were still waiting for them. Now I realise that DS may have misunderstood (not for the first time
), or may not have the full story, but it appears that there are still people who hang on to places when they have no intention of using them. Some poor soul has been waiting for the waiting list to move and will have started at another school last week.
