Believe there has been major issues this year with admin which may have messed up the allocation of seats.
After Redbridge and HBS confirming to me that my DD have been allocated a place at HBS, We have today received a post from Westcliff for girls confirming the allocation and inviting my DD to join the induction day.
Cannot imagine how this is possible, unless Essex LEA have messsed up big time. We were hoping for CCHS O/C as our first preference.
There would be a bit of a mess if Essex CC had got involved in the allocation of a place at a school in the Borough of Southend on Sea to a resident of the London Borough of Redbridge
. I would ask Redbridge to check that they hadn't accidentally told both Barnet and SBC that they had allocated your DD a place in one of their schools. If they didn't tell Southend admissions that they had allocated you a place at WHSG, possibly WHSG just didn't take you off the list of applicants, or Southend mistakenly told them that you had been allocated a place there.
