Yes. Got an email around 10:54 am today.

Does it have to be specified as the first preference as mentioned in the email?
The next line says that school do not know about preferences, so confusing.

Just got ours too... phew.

ss1612, I am pretty certain that TG must be put as the 1st option (if that is your preference). It’s so oversubscribed that they don’t even need to go to 2nd preference.

Just to be clear. They don’t look at first preference first. There is only one list for each school. Everyone is ranked in order of the oversubscription criteria. Nobody can jump over your ranking on that list*. You will only be removed from that list if you can be offered a higher preference school.

Your schools need to be listed in your true order of preference. Your most preferred school should be at the top of your application.

*late/new application can be slotted to the school list appropriate to the oversubscription criteria.

If someone has a higher preference school but don't get it and put TG second but are high up in the rankings then they will get TG. It will not prejudice your chances of getting TG by putting it second if you do have a genuine higher preference.

It is a really simple process but it is incredibly difficult to explain clearly! I don’t think anyone who has attempted an explanation will disagree! :lol:

Here’s the guidance provided by Kingston Borough:

Quote:
School preferences
The order of preference in which you list your schools is confidential. Schools are not told the preference order in which you have listed them.
 Each school listed on your application considers your child’s application against its admission criteria only and not according to the order of preference you put the school on your application. This guarantees that, for example, an application from a parent who has ranked the school as sixth preference is considered equally to an application where the school is ranked as first preference.
 If your child meets the admission criteria for more than one school, your home council will look at your preference order and you will be offered the highest preference school for which your child has met the admission criteria.
 If your home council is not able to offer your child a place at any of the schools you applied for, you will be offered, where possible, a place at another school.
Order of preference
 You should think carefully about your order of preference when you decide how to list the schools you are applying for. This is because if your child qualifies for a place at a number of schools, you will only be made one offer at the school that you named as a higher preference.
If you apply for selective schools, please be aware that even if your child qualifies for a place, your child will not be offered a place at a selective school if they have also qualified for a school that you list as a higher preference on your application. If you are applying to more than one selective school, you should
list the schools in the order that you prefer them.
