Hi, my son got 221 and we live in Solihull, I don't think he has a chance to get into BV (being realistic), but wanted to keep an eye out what is happening with the waiting list and scores including distances, so would appreciate if anyone can update please. Thanks

The ‘Waiting List’ thread seems to have a lot of info being posted.

Thanks, with best intentions I was just trying to isolate information for BV rather than trawling through the all the messages....

If someone wishes to update this thread then it will be appreciated!

Muchas gracias :)

Confusing, because on the other thread it says 227 has been offered... :?

Sometimes you have to cut through the rumour and speculation :wink:

My DS is on the waiting list for BV with a score of 226 and 3.5 miles. I called B'ham LEA today and they confirmed he was 32nd on the waiting list. She said they'd know more after appeals are heard on 1April but by my reckoning that would push him further down the list not up it.

If there are successful appeals from above your DS on the waiting list, he would nominally move up. But balancing this, you would be waiting for more DC with an actual place at the school to turn it down, before your DS got an offer, as the school would be over PAN.

So, realistically this means BV waiting lists will potentially see movements after 1st April from the way I interpret this....

Looks like BV is the last of the schools to move on their lists. I think all the other schools have now gone to 2nd offers
