My son is going to have to leave his private school in September of this year (please don't be insulting or patronising about this (I read the Rachel Johnson thread) - I really do need advice) and I have no idea how to find another school at such short notice. Has anyone been through this and could give me some pointers ? Thanks
Also - go to your County Council/Local Authority's website. Then find Children's Services, then find schools. There should be "Applications" type link there. Applications to schools are done through the LA rather than the school themselves, although the school will know if there are spaces (not much help in August, but you could try on GCSE/A Level results day, when there will be people in the school office).
Many thanks for that - I tried Southwark Council yesterday but with no joy in getting hold of anyone. Also, I think I might have to try several authorities nearby (Lambeth, Bromley, Westminster) etc. which seems to be a logistical nightmare. Oh well, Monday is another day.
