the silly thing is we only put two grammar schools on her form and no others so if we don't get a place we are very stuck
Regarding that point, all is not lost: http://www.kent.gov.uk/education_and_le ... otherplace
Can I apply for a place at a school I did not name on my application form? What should I do?
From 17 April, if you live in Kent and are not happy with the school you have been offered, you can apply for a place at another Kent secondary school (not named on your original application form) by completing an extended preference form and sending it direct to the school. The extended preference form will be available to print and complete from this website on 17 April. If you are unable to print the form and would like us to send you a copy, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
or telephone 0300 333 6472. If your child does not get a place at that school you will have the right of appeal and you can ask for your child’s name to be placed on the waiting list.
This gives you a second chance, after the next round of allocations (17th April), to apply for other schools that were not on your CAF, and the right to appeal for a place if they subsequently cannot admit her.
