Things are little bit complicated. My daughter is already offered a place from the top preference school. However, she is asking whether it is possible to go second preference school which all her best friends will go to. FYI, my daughter also passed the exam mark of second preference school and also live inside catchment area.

1. Will Trafford allow children to be placed on a waiting list for a lower preference school, if they have received a higher preference offer.

2. If yes, what is the chance to get a place from second preference school comparing to other children who put this school as their first preference?

Thanks advance for any suggestion.

You will need to contact Trafford directly as different LAs have different procedures here.

It will depend where she ranks according to their admission criteria, not where she placed them on the CAF.

Hi mad? Thanks for you comment.

You are right that places are always allocated in accordance with the oversubscription criteria for the school, not on preference order. Trafford also confirmed that they allow children to be placed on a waiting list for a lower preference school.
