I don't follow this. To one parent, they are quoting that sometimes they don't offer anyone from the WL as everyone who got an offer takes it up.
Whereas for others they contact parents and offer to put the child in WL even if the child has got a higher preference school already.

We got our first preference, but in the first week of March itself, received a letter from Wilson school which pretty much said that they would help us to put our DS in WL if we want to change our mind.

My DS got an offer fairly quickly by getting promoted to WL#1. We accepted this offer. All transfer is complete which opens up a place in Tiffin now.

Congratulations !!

I was looking at the QE thread where you were asking about WL situation there.
Are you still trying to join the WL of QE and would move if you get a place?

We got a confirmation from Barnet council that my child is on WL for QE. With his score 262, I guess he should be at a good number in the WL; however I mailed them today to withdraw my child from QE, Barnet too. We decided to go with only Wilson's. All the best to your child.

These schools are almost similar if I am going by feedback that I collected from various people before CAF.
I liked the precision with which Wilsons managed the exam day.

I am assuming that you don't have to move houses for Wilson's.
In that case, your decision becomes even stronger.

All the best to you and your DS too.

All the best to your son and I think all those who have secured a place in other schools should call school office to take their names away from WL so the kids who are waiting can receive their offers.

All these positions are managed by LA's. So, LA is asking the parents to accept such WL positions by asking them to decline other WL's and held places before we accept any offer. Parents don't have to call up the schools directly.

I mean to say those parents who are happy with their second preference as you have withdrawn your son's name from QE WL.
