Hi Etienne

You suggested for me to send you the school’s case / breakdown of HT recommendations when we got it which we now have.

Number recommended (number qualified)
1.1. - 6 (5) ( the one who didn’t qualify was our dd)
1.2. - 4 (3)
2.2. - 4 (2)

So 10 out of the 14 recommended, qualified.
30 in class, 25 took the test. 11 not recommended for grammar school.

Thank you for any further thoughts on this. Does this look like our HT made reasonable predictions?!?

I for one am convinced. :)

I find the '2' recommendations the most revealing.
The success rate here for the 2:1s/2:2s looks a bit above average, but what stands out is that the head has been realistic and hasn't put forward too many candidates.
Experienced panel members probably get tired of seeing long lists of '2' recommendations, most of whom haven't qualified.

In my view the '1' recommendations ought to be much easier to get right, so I'd be looking for a high success rate. 8 out of 10 should be fine.

I suggest you draw the panel's attention to the matrix at stage 2, and remind the panel that your daughter was one of the 6 with a 1:1.
At this point you could refer to the low number of '2' recommendations, and you might consider asking the LA rep whether he agrees that overall the head hasn't over-recommended, but has been very realistic.
There's a good chance he'll agree with you!

Thanks Etienne. That’s helpful and reassuring - although the odds are still definitely against us. 40 are appealing for AHS and I note they didn’t go over PAN the past 2 years.

But I feel we are as equipped as we can be and do appreciate all the comment and advice.

Our stage 2 isn’t until early June but I will share our experience and outcome once known.

Dds Guinea pig died last night so not great timing with SATS this week - but at least she is not aware of appeal and the shenanigans of it all :wink:
Bw
