Hi, I wonder if you can advise. I'm pretty confused about whether our appeal is non qualification or over subscription or both, even after reading all the Q&As here. We are appealing for a place at KES, Stratford, and have dates in May for hearing. Up til now I have based case purely on non-qualification (my son was 4 marks short of waiting list min) and have collated evidence to show high achievement. However, I am now wondering if I must present reasons why that particular grammar school is best for him, and so on, ie make case against over-subscription also? Our case against over-sub is not strong I don't think - we don't live that close to the school, he has no sibling there, etc. But it is the only viable grammar near to us and our case rests on fact that he is grammar school standard. I hope someone can help; our individual hearing is 3 May.
