Can anyone give me some advice please? My nephew hasn't been allocated the school he wants. They live in Brighton so no grammars but he wanted a place at a comp that specialises in the arts (he esp wants drama). I'm not 100% sure but I think it is an academy. I had a vague idea that these schools could select a small % of pupils with talent in the subject the schools have as their specialism. If he could prove he was gifted/talented would this be a grounds to appeal for a place in this school?
Seems silly to me...another boy has been allocated the school my nephew would like but would rather go to the one my nephew has got...shame they can't swop!
Is it worth my brother trying to appeal or is it just not going to make any difference? Anyone have experience of the system there?
Thanks, I have tried looking online but I tend to find the advice here quicker and better!!
