Very sad news. Sally-Anne helped a great many people navigate the Bucks system of testing, reviews and appeals. As well as the help evident on these forums, she also did a lot of work behind the scenes to try and influence things so that the system was fairer for all who entered, the majority of whom were probably not forum visitors. That was the reach of the work she put in and for which families, schools and the county council should be grateful. Her crystal ball predictions seemed to get more accurate each year, which shows just how much knowledge we've lost. I suspect she understood the statistics and nuances of the Bucks system better than many school heads and certainly better than any of us on the forum.

Thank you to her family for "lending" Sally-Anne to the forum. She made a huge difference to many families and will be much missed.

Oh no, I’m so sorry to hear this awful news. What a loss for her family.

Sally-Anne was such a kind and insightful lady (we never met in real life, but she was so articulate and aposite in her posts and PMs, I had a feel of her lively personality and sense of humour). During my two DDs’ travels through the Bucks system she was both helpful and pragmatic. And I, like so many others, appreciated her Crystal Ball and her insightful posts and support.

My sincere condolences to her real-life friends and family. She was unique, and thank you for sharing her over the years with our virtual community. We will miss her very much.

Oh my gosh, i really don't know what to say!

Sally-Anne was the most amazing lady, nothing was ever too much for her, she has to be one of the most selfless people I have ever come across!

She has helped me on a number of occasions, both for my DCs 11+ journeys and more recently for a friends review/appeal.

RIP beautiful lady!
