Thank you hera, hope it's good news for you.

We got none of our four choices. I’m trying not to cry and haven’t told my son as he’s so excited.

Really sorry to hear this. I hope you are high on some waiting lists.

There will be lots of SW herts places handed back in the next week as parents decide to take the private school offers instead. DG

Rab20 - bad luck. We got our 4th choice (our "safety school") so also not over the moon.

But I know from doing this with my older one there's an awfully long way to go until September. In that case we didn't get the school we wanted until last week of August - but we got it in the end. Don't give up hope just yet.


Ps for us older one is at single sex school. Younger one can't go there as one's a girl and one's a boy. Sibling rule would just be too easy!!

I assume you're not referring to the Watford Grammar schools, where the cross-sibling rule applies?

Thanks, we knew it could happen as last year we would only have qualified for three of our on continuing interest. We did hope that the extra 150 pan would have helped but it seems not.

Hi Otter - no not in Watford. In St Albans where state boys and girls have no cross sibling rule.

Waiting to see cutoffs for SW Herts consortium schools in case there's a chance on continuing interest lists. Unfortunately Parmiters now won't publish 2018 cutoff until Monday (as the school is closed due to snow). However other consortium schools that have published look to have increased cutoff scores from last year - so our score maybe too low to get a place even on CI. Disappointed but need to see official cutoffs!

Don’t panic if you don’t get what you want in this round, we got none of our choices in round 1 but our first choice in the second round after staying on CI as we were just at the cut off score for previous year.

We've had good news - DS has got his first choice (grammar in Bucks).
