Hi All

I called BCC on Friday and was told DD was offered a place by letter on 14 May. I had not received anything. So I rang Sutton and they said that they had not been told and that due to staff shortages at BCC this was common. She told me to call BCC and ask them to email the new offers.

I called BCC back, another lady answered and confirmed DD had a place. I explained Sutton had not been told. She said the admissions team were only in from 9-2 and I should call back on Monday.

I did not receive a letter in post on Saturday and decided not to tell DD until I was absolute sure offer had been received by Sutton.

I rang BCC this morning spoke a different person confirming her place and said that he would get admissions team to send email.

I received a call later today from SCGS and DD offered a place. She was 4th last Monday. Just told her and she is over the moon. :D :D I will await the paperwork from BCC and Sutton.

I would recommend that you do call more frequently if you are nearing the top of the list, as I believe had I not called, BCC would have thought they sent the letter and forgot to email the school and I may have missed out or had a longer wait.

Thank you all for your support. Good luck to those waiting. I will still be watching the lists. :D :D


Family, that's brilliant. Many congratulations to your DD.

Thanks 2018, I hope you don’t have long to wait either. I think you were 19th, you should call to see where you are now as should have moved up. I am keeping my fingers crossed for you. Going on past scores you DD still has a good chance of getting a place, so keep your spirits up :D

Congratulations to DD and good luck to all those waiting.

Hopefully you will get there. Call after half term as they are probably waiting for people to get back. Have a nice Bank Holiday weekend :D
