National Offer Day - 11Plus parents on the edge of their seats!

by The Mock Test Masters team on 02/27/17

National Offer Day, 1st March is the day that children who sat the 11Plus exams in September last year find out whether they got into their first choice secondary school. This will be anxious day for 11Plus parents as they have spent considerable time and money preparing their children for the 11Plus exams.


Your local authority will begin to send out emails on Wednesday 1st and letters will follow later in the week.


Unfortunately, as happens each year, it is not possible to offer every child a

place at a school that they listed as a preference on their application form.  This is because for each of the schools that are named on these application forms, there could be more applications than places available, and other applicants may have a higher priority for a place under each school’s published admission criteria.


So what will the local authority do in this case?


1.     Your local authority has a legal duty to ensure that a place is

made available for every child in its borough, whether this is at a school inside or outside the borough.


2.     For many boroughs, your child’s name will be automatically added to the waiting lists for all the schools that you named as a preference on your application form. Do check with your local authority.


If your child is allocated a school place, it is important to accept or decline the school offer. There is a deadline by which you must do this in order to free up places for other parents. 

Read our next blog on to find out what to do if your child does not get into the school of their choice.
