I was wondering if there's any other MN'ers on the countdown to the 22nd September? How's everyone feeling? How's everyone's DC's feeling? Does anyone want a hand-holding session, support and even a rant? I'd love to hear from fellow Essex parents
DS1 is still number 18 on the waiting list for CRGS, and number 51 on the OOC waiting list for KEGS, so there has been NO movement.
I didn't expect there to be any movement for KEGS tbh, because I know that they are already one over PAN because admissions made a fluff up with someone else's application and gave them CRGS when they were IC for KEGS.
Because of this, KEGS were made to take one extra pupil, so for there to be any movement on the waiting list, TWO pupils have to turn down KEGS. Only then will they start offering places to the waiting list.
I'm surprised that there hasn't been any movement on the CRGS waiting list though - because I KNOW that one person who was offered CRGS is turning the place down to go to Ipswich school, plus the person who was offered CRGS mistakenly that is now at KEGS, there should have been at least 2 places movement on that list.
I'm assuming that Admissions haven't yet processed the refusal forms, hence no movement. Will try again on Friday...
Thanks for the info. I thought it was strange that not a single child out of 120 had declined a place. Felsted, New Hall and the Brentwood school would be pretty empty without any scholarships being taken up.
As the CRGS list and ic / occ Kegs have not moved it does seem that the refusal forms have not been processed yet.
A friend of mine was offered a place at CCHS last week but the phone call came from CCHS and not ECC. However, ECC did tell another parent further down the list that their child had moved 3 places up for CCHS. It seems like CCHS are on the ball. Last year DD got her Welcome pack from CCHS on 2nd March!
