Essex admissions portal is now back alive again. Just checked the offer.. and very happy to see my DD has been offered our first choice SHSG (A Great School.. my elder DD is already going there and very happy).

She scored 358.33 (Out of Catchment)

Best of Luck to all the kids who are waiting for their offer.

Last year, my DD missed 1st list by couple of marks and she finally got the offer in the 1st week of May.Based on below , I am confident that your DD's wait list position is under 10 , and she will get the offer this month itself. All the best!

Arghh just checked with Southend Council and my daughter has gone from 8th to 9th on the waiting list already! The lady has said historically they can go up on the waiting list more with SHSG than WHSG so I'm now panicking. How are people allowed to get added to a waiting list, I understand if mistakes have been made but how else? Any help greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Because late applications have to be allowed and have to be added to the waiting list in their correct placing. And waiting lists must be maintained in the same oversubscription criteria order as the original allocations were made, otherwise the Admissions authority would be in breach of the Admissions Code

It may be annoying when you are experiencing it this way round, but imagine that you had to move to another area (or even, you didn't apply to WHSG, even though you live in Manchester Drive, but now something awful has happened and you need a place within walking distance )- if your DD's score / distance would put her at the top of the waiting list, but the admissions authority were allowed to say, sorry, you have to go to the bottom of the list, you would (rightly) feel pretty aggrieved.

Yes, it seems 'unfair' if you are bumped down by someone who has just added SHSG because they are miles down on the ColCHS list, or whatever, and just want a grammar place anywhere, but where they in on the waiting list is controlled by law.
