I think all schools are posting their letters today so should receive them tomorrow

We got the letter this morning. DS didn’t get an offer but is on the waiting list. We are ok with that result as we got offers from 3 other schools. Good luck!

Does anyone know how much movement there is normally on the Channing waiting list, or do they over offer a lot? TIA.

Sorry just realised I've posted this in the wrong place!

AAA20 have you had your letter yet?

We have a WL for DC too....I was told that the list doesn’t move much so not to be too hopeful. Has anyone else heard anything different? Thankfully we also have another 2 options.

We are on waiting list . I don’t know what to do as my son has his heart set on the school . The interview went well but I don’t understand where it all goes wrong . Do you have any idea how their waiting list works ? Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thank you

I have no idea AAA20 but will keep my fingers crossed for you that there are a lot of people declining their offers so that the WL moves. Hang on in there. It’s early days yet.

We got an offer and we are very happy.My son really loved Dulwich so we will accept. Regarding the waitlist I would email the school and tell them that you are very keen and would accept an offer immediately should you receive one. After that wait until 6th Mach and send a follow up email. Also if you are at a Prep school your head may call on your behalf.

My son got offered a place - we are thrilled and will take it up. I do know there is movement and there will be kids who get other places at schools like Kings and will be making up their minds, so hang tight, and if you really want a place, get on the phone and call up and show your interest.

Yes, if you’re at a feeder prep then I’d chat to the head about it and see if there are any strings to be pulled.

We got the letter today and DS was offered a place. He has some friends that are also waitlisted and they’ve been told not to get their hopes up.

I know of children that will be declining the place for scholarships at different schools so there is movement.
