Yes of course they said:
There are two the first one is:
We have now completed the assessment of our Sixth Form candidates for September 2024 entry.
We were very impressed by ___’s application and she did well in our entrance tests. We would love to have her at the school, but unfortunately we have had a large number of applicants and an exceptionally strong field this year so at the moment we do not have a place available for her.
This has been an extremely difficult decision and ____ is right at the top of our reserve list. I will be in contact immediately should a suitable place become available.
Please do keep in touch with me about your child’s situation and feel free to ask for updates.
With best wishes,
The second one is a response to mine which is:
Thank you for your email that was forwarded to me. I hope that you and _____ are well.
_____ performed pretty well in our entrance exams and was strong during our group interview. We would love to have her at SevenoaksSchool but, as you know, numbers are very limited for girls’ Boarding places, only 36 places.
Should any movement occur, I will be contact you straight away. There are a few girls above her on the reserve list. At this stage, it is difficult to predict if more offers will be made as it depends on the response of current offer holders but I am hopeful. For your information, the deadline to accept places at the school is this coming Friday 8 December 2023.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish _____ all the best.
