Congratulations :). If you are going to take up the offer, I do hope you haven't cut the labels off too much of her Handsworth uniform...

Congratulations!
Somebody on the HGS waiting list will be very happy too.

Congratulations to your DD! I have kept half an eye out for a post from you as my DD same score but a bit closer - we had offer late June. Will you accept? Suspect you must be near top of w/l for CHG too! How odd that people just don’t turn up first day of term!

Congratulations! This just goes to prove that every year there is a handful of parents out there, who for whatever reason, would hold on to their offered place even after taking up another offer.

I personally know one who still hold on to a place at BV even that they have decided since March to go to a private school! Hopefully BV will take note of his no show and offer to other soon.

Hi just to let you know that my son was offered a place at Bishop Vesey today. He was second on the waiting list since mid August. We have turned down his place at KE Aston. He originally started off at 102 on BV waiting list!! There is movement. Fingers crossed and good luck to everyone.

If places are being offered now from the waiting list and being accepted, well done to you. For those who had no intention of taking up the places being vacated (e.g. Already had an independent place or another offer elsewhere) shame on you. Disgusting waste of the schools' time, parents money on uniform, not mention the mindstate of those children starting a school and then suddenly moving to a higher preferred school.

I agree.
I've seen it on many occasions, some people are either too lazy to inform the school they will not be taking the place or just hold on until the last possible minute. :roll:
For those waiting it is extremely distressing being in limbo.

Fab news for those who have secured places this last week. Well done to your DC.
