A very important day, yesterday, for a number of parents across the country. Hopefully you got your first choice, or at least one of your choices, for secondary placement. For those unlucky few, the appeal right under section 94 of the School Standards and Framework Act 1998 may allow for some hope. Details of the process should be available from all Admissions Authorities. Hopefully, by September, all pupils are ready for secondary school and are looking forward to the challenges ahead.
