Welcome to Appeals!
Having asked for this document, I have received a 10 page document by email after a few days of my request.
Glad to hear they co-operated by responding quite promptly to your request.
I was given the total children from Yr7 to y11 adding to 1091 - Should I ask for sixth form?
Depends whether you want to compare the total number on roll with the net capacity - but broadly speaking this would only affect communal areas.
I'd also look to see whether the "indicated admission number" and the published admission number are the same or similar.
Does this mean they have space?
On the information you've given, in overall terms probably not - but even if they did, it wouldn't really help you if it's in another part of the school!
I would have thought class size in the relevant
year group is what actually matters.
Please can someone shed light on this or PM me on how to analyse this information and fight my case on oversubcription.
If you want to study the finer points of net capacity you'll find a link to the DfE's guidance here:http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/appeal ... school#c14
To be honest, though, I think time would be better spent refining your own case, not expending too much energy on the AA case.
Even if you were to identify any serious flaws in the school case, assuming there are numerous other appellants, it would benefit them (i.e. "the competition") too!
I doubt whether an appeal panel will want to get bogged down in the minutiae of the net capacity formula .......
