I have been reading articles on this forum and have seen notes regarding HT Recommendations with scores being 1:! etc.
You'll have seen a lot of mentions of this as at this time of year there are a lot of messages about Bucks appeals - they run them before allocation day. There will now be a rise in appeals for other areas now allocation day has passed, and as Etienne says, most counties don't use that system.
my daughters yr6 teacher is coming with me, so without doubt we do have their backing.
Very unusual - you're lucky.
My older daughter now in yr8 passed her 11+ but we decided against the GS ..... Would this perhaps illustrate that we know this child is suitable for GS just as we knew the older one was not?
It would suggest that you're not obsessed by Grammar schools and want what is most suitable for each child.
I did hear similar evidence at appeal one, although it was a side point rather than the basis of the appeal. I was impressed by those particular parents, but it was the other circumstances that swung it for them.
