I have just spoken to KEGS, Chelmsford to let them know that DS will not be joining them in September. They mentioned that every year they have a few places where parents do not let them know that they will not be taking up places and were very grateful for the call. Looking through the GS threads it is clear that lots of people are in hopeful positions on wait lists. If you are sitting on a GS place that you are not taking, please can you make sure you decline it and let the school know.
Thanks for starting this thread Tubby - I want to remind those sitting on grammar school offers but not accepting them to put their wishes across to the schools concerned ASAP.
Fingers crossed for all in the queue for waiting list at QE.
I hope those who has been offered a place, but do not want it, makes the effort to reject it so that our DC's that are in the queue can take up the place.
Please please if you know anyone with a QE offer that is sitting on it and does not want it - remind them to decline it. I will post this on the Independent Forum too.
Best of luck to all.
