My son passed both slough (111) and bucks(121) 11+. We put Herschel as our first choice, however Herschel is oversubscribed therefore we have been offered our second choice.
We have appealed, we have been offered our second choice this school is about 6miles away from our home and Herschel is approx 2 miles. Additionally grandparents live 5 mins away from Herschel, as both parents work this is very important. Furthermore my son is very upset because most of his friends have been offered a place at Herschel. Academically my son is in top set for all his subjects at school he is predicted level 5's in all his subjects.
We have got an a appeal date in couple weeks can anyone help all info welcome. My thoughts are the above reasons for an appeal to a oversubscribed school are weak.
