I loved this school and would dearly have loved my daughter to have gone there especially as her brother attends the boys school. Unfortunately we were unsuccessful yesterday by a long way.
We are fortunate in that we have a plan B with a place already secured at Knole Academy under the performing arts criteria.
So on the upside we don't have to wait until March now, my daughter is extremely happy and we will not be taking up a place at Wilmington via the sibling rule.
I know first impressions tend to stick, but I would seriously recommend visiting this school before you discount it.
Good luck to all those that apply
