We are out of catchment for BGS (20 miles) and have not been allocated a place. I know this was touch and go but we have been offered a place at out local comp.
I wanted to know if anyone can advise if it is likely we can get a place
The first round allocation for Burnham is quite a long way out, at 13.509 miles and, based on past years it could well go to All Offered in the coming months.
and what is the best procedure.
Call Bucks CC Admissions and ask for an appeal form and return it to them. Your daughter's name will then be put on the waiting list and you can also go ahead with appealing if you wish. Appeals are unlikely to take place until June, so there is time for further rounds of allocations to deliver a place.
I have logged into my online account with hillingdon council but there is no information about going on waiting lists or about appeals. Also I rang Bucks CC and they advised to speak to Hillingdon council but I rang hillingdon and they said speak to Bucks CC. Noboby seems to know who is best to speak to. I emailed the school so will wait to see what they have to say.
The school will definitely refer you back to Bucks CC. There has been rather too much confusion this year over waiting lists, with a lot of people being shunted back and forth between their own LA and Bucks.
