Just got my sons high school choice back this week and wanted some help on an appeal.
He got his second choice but id prefer him to get his first choice because of the distance he has to travel.
the school he has been offered is over 5 miles away and the first choice is just over a mile away but we just miss out on the boundary intake.
the nearest high school to our home is a no go for us i know this because i work there! i would be fuming if they sent him there.
so am abit worried they might suggest this school if i appeal because of distance so am wanting some help/tips on what to put on an appeal if you've ever won one for your child.
ive just been reading an article saying dont settle for second best! but the writer suggests that to be in with a chance of winning we'd need to present a strong case,such as the school as breached its admission policy,rather than stating the school has a poor reputation etc
how on earth would i find out that the school as breached the admission policy i have no idea!
the first choice school is really popular i knew he wouldnt get offered it but im gonna fight but with your help and advise please :-)
