Hello, yes DD got an AP this year. Our income is low and I was called in for interview. The burser seemed satisfied we could make the payments of AP. We got offered AP 2 1/2 months later. I know she was the last kid to get in as her name was written on class register in biro. It is a brilliant school and we are so glad. She is loving it!

Frogletmamma that's great your DD got in. I've heard of people being offered a place without interview but to be honest I'd rather just have one. So it was just you and not your daughter they called in? Was it purely to look at your finances and proofs? I'd be delighted if my dd was awarded a place. She had no tution & I know competition is fierce!

Yes the interview was just me. It was all about finances for about 1/2 hour then 5 minutes chat about DD. DD didn't have tutor but I did the Bond books with her for the KE Grammars. The exam seemed way more about being creative and expressing yourself than the standard 11+. Good luck!

Frogletmamma was you previously turned down to begin with for the bursary or did they offer it you 2 half months down the line as procedure?
