I would suggest that at this stage of the school holidays it's highly unlikely someone will give up their space.

Most will be in the throes of uniform and buss pass purchasing

Although it might be worth the OP only taking the tags off the bare minimum of their own DS's allocated school uniform at the start of term. No-shows do happen at many schools in the first week.

They have a friend of ours son attended. I am afraid that generally if a child attends and does not give up their place immediately afterwards then they are likely to turn up. The problem you h ave is numbers. Your son will only get a place if one of the few out of catchment places is released. Over the period that you have sat at number 1 it is possible that several in catchment places have become free.

Don't give up though. In my son's year at CRGS, one boy just didn't turn up and then, possibly m more relevant to you, a boy who was travelling some distance just couldn't manage the journey and dropped out after a few weeks.

The other thing is to keep yourself on the list. One of my son's friends at CRGS just missed out on a place at KEGS and lived a 10 minute walk away. His parents were contacted by the school half way through year 7 to say that a place had come up but that the waiting list no longer applied and there was an exam to allocate the place. He decided to stay where he was and I am sure lots of people do this. As your son must have scored very high marks in the original he must stand a really good chance of getting a place this way and places do come up every year.

Good luck
