We live in Cornwall where there are no Grammer Schools. My son is in yr6 at State Primary. In yr 5 he was level 5`s. Now he is working at level 6 Maths( teacher from comp comes over), his NFER reading score is 2.5yrs above his age, and he is on G+T register. He is likely to get 5a`s in sats. We applied for an Assisted Place for Senior Independent school. I had to declare income ( I am on State benefits as a carer), Mortgage statement, house evaluation and 12 months bank statements etc.
He passed 11+ and got an "outstanding" maths grade "which showed considerable forte". You just get feedback at this sch not results!
They offered me an assisted Place for £800 a month instead of £1000!
This leaves me wondering whether they even looked at the paperwork I submitted. They couldnt better the offer so I had to decline. Their website states Assisted Places are "upto the value of full fees" - clearly not the case! This leaves me wondering why did I bother - my son is gutted and all the paperwork / references took weeks to prepare. Then there was all the prep my son did
Anyone out there get a full fees place??
