I also heard that a 220 score was not offered. Best of luck to all in getting offered where you want to go.

Hi Narmatha, I understand the letters from Newstead with the number on the waiting list were received on Saturday. Someone with a few more points than your DD are in the mid forties on the waiting list. We know that last year in July it went down to waitlist position 23 and possibly a few more after that.

Sweet Memory - Dartford Girls have a qualifying score, it isn’t just a pass unlike many of the Kent grammars, they have two criteria, IC have a lower score as they are in defined parishes and OC can be anywhere in the country that is not IC and distance only applies as a tie breaker. The OC qualifying score is far higher as there are fewer spaces. There is a thread here about qualifying scores for this year viewtopic.php?f=19&t=57404

Someone also asks re Newstead whether they tell you what month you have to wait until - they can’t possibly know, they only give a waitlist position. I am not sure if they send waitlist positions to everyone. They can’t know how long someone might have to wait as it could be they never get a place. It is also dependent on how many have higher choice schools they are waiting for and if they get those, if they decide to go independent etc. Past experience can be a guide, but only that, a guide, and that is information we glean from forums like this.

Narmatha - sorry but a position of 57 is not a likely one to get a place if last year position 23 got a place in July. DD who attended the familiarisation in late June when she joined (sometimes it is early July) said that after that date the names given out as class lists changed by about one name per class and was mostly down to those who didn’t turn up and the school followed up and found out they were not attending, mostly due to going private. Please don’t shoot the messenger! Dartford Girls is a great school!
