My son just received his 11 plus exam result and he manage to score 129. We plan to get him in our preference grammar school. When we filling the application, I saw a question 'You may tell us of any other reasons to support your application for a place at XXX Grammar School . Any reasons you give for a particular school preference will be shared with other admission authorities. It is essential that you indicate on the previous pages if you want your child's application considered under the admission rules of the preferred school.' [There is a limit of 3000 characters for you to tell us about other reasons.]
Do you all think is a good idea to fill-in that or just leave it blank? Or I should put recommendation from his current teacher?
That box is there to alert them in case someone has applied for a sibling place, or under 'Social and medical' or 'looked after' or some other category that the school will consider under it's admissions policy. To make sure it gets considered under the correct admissions criteria. Nothing you put in that box will influence the application one way or another.
