I went to an open day a couple of years ago and they seemed to imply if you were on the wait list and really wanted the school you would get a place. I don't know if that has. changed, this was for Sep 16 entry. They encourage you to make this clear to the admissions team. Congratulations on getting a waitlist place, I know some last year who didn't even get that. There will be a lot of movement after 1 March. We reluctantly turned down a place as DD had other great and more nearby state options but if money had been no object S/oaks was a top contender. Good luck.
