Yay Tommies for us!!

Hope this doesn't sound like a silly question... is there anything we have to do to accept the place or is it just automatic?

Well done everyone :lol:

Didn't you get a letter too? There is a box to tick - nowhere even to sign. You need to return it to Shire Hall by 14 March.

Wow. Hope that's true. Historically, it hasn't gone past 230. Thanks for that. Fingers crossed. Where's that ****** postman? :o

Orson, can't you look on the council website? Even if you didn't opt for email you can see it on there if you have the password you chose at the time.

Of course, with nearly everyone ticking all the boxes on the form there will be a lot of girls with no intention of going to up to three of their 'choices'.

DD's friend got in at the late 240's on the waiting list and two others got in who were significantly lower 'really,really low down' on the list - she thinks 280ish.

I can just hear DD2's comment to that in my head "It's not a waiting list - it's a ranking list. The waiting list doesn't start until after 1st March". And indeed, last year she did say that repeatedly to all her friends before 1st March. She's also a bit of a pedant.

To which I would add that you do need to ask to be on the waiting list - I think there's a tick box when you return the acceptance of place form. And also, MAKE SURE YOU DO ACCEPT A PLACE! Sorry to shout, but even if you intent launching an appeal, accept the place you've been offered - otherwise you could end up loosing the appeal and not having any school (or at least not a convenient one) come September!

Tried that, Amber. Nothing.
Shire Hall say there were problems with the email registration back pre-October and for some people it didn't work. Looks like we have to wait for a letter and the postie never comes a.m. D'oh.

Help. How low down the rankings are SHS going with offers? I know of 227. Any progress on that?
Thx


I'm desperate to know that too :?:

Ooh are you able to confirm that 280? - I'm desperate to find out. I'm appealing and really need to know whats going on with places etc. I can't understand how that works though - If there are 120 places then how can the offers be up to 280 or even over 240? Surely even if all 120 didn't choose to go to SHS they would only be able to offer a further 120 taking it up to 240? :? Can anyone explain?

How frustrating for you. If it was me and they had mucked up like that I would be on the 'phone.
It sounds as if you will be OK though...fingers crossed.

Sarah it's because not all of the second 120 would need a place, a good number of those would also want another school
