    Hello, Does anybody know about the waiting list? I am applying for the sixth form. I am Chinese student also I am applying for King's school canterbury(Failed), Bromsgrove school( Waiting List), Ipswich school(Failed), Cheltenham college( No answer), Burgess Hill school for Girls( OFFER). Also I want to apply for the lancing college. What do you think??? Should I will be waiting for the Bromsgrove school, or give up the Burgess Hill offer? Also whatever I am interested in Leweston school and Sherborne school for girls ....
    To be honest, I don't like single sex school also I visited Burgess that I don't like their environment.

    Can anybody give me the suggestion??? I am confused now. My parents recommend me to go to Burgess Because other school that I wouldn't get offer and maybe failed directly.

    You need to ask the college directly.

    Ask how many and what % of people on the waiting list last year got a place.

    And ask when you will know either way.

    Choose another school in case you aren't given an offer.
    I was rejected from 2 schools and was put on the waiting list for another school (my favourite school) and I got an offer in a week!

    However, if you don't like a school, don't accept - there's no point going to a school you don't think you'll like.

    I agree the opinion from above floor.
    Actually cause I am in England so that l am able to visit school which I prefer.
    I have heard someone got Bromsgrove's offer in Augest
    Actually that's too late for the international students (we have got CAS, VISA, DEPOSIT too many things to prepare.)
    But if the school is i like it, I think that I need to try
    Now I try to persuade my parents to give up this offer cause I really not interested in this school.
    I will ask to the Bromsgrove school.
    Many thanks.

Actually the top 25 I checked which has strong academic ability!

    Does anybody really focus on these thing??? In China, the educational agency highly recommend these school also it's not cheap.

    Hey! I go to Leweston school in Sherborne and have been there since year ten. I love it here and I full board, its small but has a very unique quality about it. Also We have quite a few girls from Hong Kong and China so there are plenty of girls who speak both Cantonese and Mandarin. The class sizes are small so you get plenty of one on one time with your teachers. If you have any questions about Leweston feel free to ask.
