Hi, Yes I am out of catchment. The waiting list for WBHS doesn't seem to be moving that much.
Hi waitingmum, I also rang Essex regarding Colchester Boys and KEGS and they had only moved 1 space!!!! (my son is on those waitings lists too, although he is WAY down on their lists) so at the moment Southend Borough seems to have more movement, hopefully that will continue and it is still very early days yet.......but Iam pinning my hopes on Westcliff
As you rightly say, it's early days. This is my 3rd time round at being toyed with by waiting lists, in the last 5 years. DD is now 5 for Colchester, which, incidentally, has also only moved 1 place so far.
This is a bit like getting on one of those rides you really don't want to try. Strap in, stay calm and make sure you have finished your sandwiches and your Coke lid is screwed on tight!
waitingmum, WOW your third time round, you must have nerves of STEEL
what are you experiences of movement in those five years, did the lists move a lot early or did you have the long drawn out agonising waiting ?? 5 for Colchester is brilliant !!! we put down Colchester Boys but are a bit way off of 5!!! our only hope now is Westcliff Boys at which we are number 11......Yep it certainly feels like one of those rides.......but hopefully it will finish very quickly
we only have one child, thankfully we dont have to go through this again
