We're just bursting with happiness! Our DD was 23rd on the waiting list for her first choice school, which is very oversubscribed year on year, and had settled for her second choice (which is also very good but a much further journey -- two trains and a bus at the end, about an hour and ten minutes each way). Well, today an offer came through from her first choice school and we grabbed it :-). These things really do happen!

That's great news for you. Did you get notified through the central email like offers happened on offer day? Or did the school contact you directly?

Great news! We are 3rd. Feel like we are in limbo land!

Fantastic news!

We got a place from the waiting list too. But it was 3 days after the appeal.confused

The council where the school was had her two places at one point according to them.

Glad it's worked out for you thanks

Great news! wine I hope your DD is very happy at her new school. [wonders where the other 23 are going]

Congratulations to your Dd. Our council has changed things this year. We no longer have to accept the place given. I wonder if this will affect the waiting lists especially if people are going private. We didn't get our waiting list place until December and that was from being 5th on offer day.
