Getting more and more nervous here.

Thinking especially about the Emanuel, KCS and Ibstock (well, have not done the exam for that yet so really just the first two...)

Go Quint Jr!
Haven't been on this thread as am applying in SE not SW London, but have followed your struggles and am vicariously pleased for your news. (We had good news ourselves yesterday from our second and third choice private schools, still waiting on choice 1 and Graveney but immensely relieved to have a satisfactory offer in the bag and happy to wholeheartedly congratulate everybody or wish good luck to those still waiting - maybe a MNer will get the one we're declining on Monday).

Both boys, despite very high maths scores failed to get the required 55% in the English paper (and also failed the resit they were offered) I am still not quite sure how they managed Whitgift.

therugratref I cant believe they did not offer them places if they had good maths scores.

How many classes are there for the 11+ entry? The offer letter said that they had reduced class size from 22 to 20 (if I read it right, ds is still hogging it)

so DS managed to get a 13+ offer for CLSB! Pleased if a little surprised as we thought the interview had not gone as well as the others. I may need to start another thread on the merits of 13+ at CLSB vs 11+ at KGS now...

Well done StClemens Junior!

Ds has now also an offer from Ibstock, so we are really stumped.

well done quintjr - now we just have to wait until March 1 to see which way the state school options go.
