Great news Dartford Dad!
I can share half your joy with you too. We appealed for our twin daughters and one got a place - we did say we were happy for them to be considered as separate cases.
My heart is breaking for the other girl though. her marks were lower but the deputy head of teh school did give some misleading replies during her appeal which i followed up with a letter hand delivered the next day. I'm sitting here feeling that my follow up was too little too late but at the time i knew nothing about SAT scores. See here for more info:
anyway, well done to all who win, and to those who didn't keep your spirits up!
We would also like to add, like Dartford Dad, that this site and everyone's support has been invaluable. Thank you all.
