Can I put RH on DD's preference list if scored 205 and wanted to appeal on medical grounds?
Do I have to tell school asap?
when would I appeal and is there a standard form??
please help as have been on appeals section and they said I need local expertise
Firstly, don't panic - you have plenty of time.
Yes, you can put it as first choice, and as you realise, you won't get offered it. You will be offered the highest choice for which you do qualify (and which has space).
You don't need to tell the school anything if your daughter didn't pass.
The waiting list for those who did pass will start after allocation day (March?), and those who passed should tell the schools at that point that they want be on the waiting list. This is also the time to start an appeal, again by asking the school for the forms.
There will be a standard form for the two grammars administered by Shire Hall, and separate ones for the other grammars.
However, now is the time to start gathering any medical evidence, along with any other evidence that may be forgotten about by March.
I can't give any individual help, but you'll find lots of advice both here & on Appeals. Have a look at the FAQ link at the top of the appeals page - very useful.
