Having been to the Pate's morning yesterday and enjoyed it very much, am feeling v sorry for those on the waiting list who are desperate for a place and are waiting with baited breath.
I feel very privileged that my DD managed to secure a place in the top 120, as had been dreading that we might fall into this twilight zone.
So wondered if we could start a post specifically for people on the forum to log on and enter if they are in the top 120 and are going to turn down their place. No need to put any reason or say where you are going instead if you don't want to. Wld any who have been lurkers before, but this applies to, also mind posting on this one, you don't have to post anything else if worried about being identified!
Also if anyone knows of anyone who doesn't come on the forum, but in this position would you post to indicate another place available.
I realise there may be the odd bit of duplication, but don't think it will be much and the info would be extremely helpful to those anxiously biting their nails.
As Mr Fenton said the school gets no information, so it is no good asking them and extremely unlikely you will get anything out of LEA before 1 March!!!!!!
Please would you also mind not adding posts with narratives starting up on any other topics on this list which may start to stray off the initial one, as happened with the "2010 scores and ranks" posting, as it makes it extremely difficult for people to follow the numbers. If you have a comment to make about anything other than just saying if you have a place and are turning it down or know of someone else who doesn't use the forum who is turning their's down, would you please mind starting up a new post to deal with it.
It may be useful to those waiting for SHS places to start up a similar post.
