they can only offer places that are declined and that number varies year on year - getting the feeling from some other parts of the country that the movement is a bit slow at present but who knows, that might change and Easter is fairly early this year

I just called admissions at Latymer and they said that our child, who was initially at position 14 on the waiting list, is now at number 7 on the list.

I also asked if they had any idea about how long it might take to get an offer, but they said they didn't know.

The Latymer Waiting list seems to be moving very slowly compared to the other grammars

Code: Select all

School 		WL Places available after March acceptance Deadline  			Current WL position offered a place 
------- 	------------------------------------------------------	                 ----------------------------------------------
QE boys			17  out of 180 places  (9.4%)   				21

HBS 			17 out of 104 places  (16%) 					17

DAO			9 out of 75           (12%)   					9 ?             

LAT 			4 out of 192  ?	       (2.1%)					7        
Were there really only 4 places released in March ? And if that's correct (maybe they only release them in batches for some reason) I wonder why is Latymer movement so slow compared to the other grammars and previous years.

Could be a number of reasons - possibly some admin problems and they ended up over-offering and went over PAN and can now only re-offer when they get below PAN or maybe late applicants?

Schools generally seem to be a bit slow around the country this year (apart from HBS and QE)

Since the council is responsible for initially allocating places up to PAN one possibility is that a number of candidates, ranked higher than 306, who didn't have Latymer as their 1st choice changed their mind. According to the admissions policy this would then place them at the head of the WL and they would automatically get offered any freed up places before the candidates ranked lower than 306 (the 1st March cut-off). Note this would require quite a lot to have changed their minds which would still be strange.
