We got our second choice. Not entirely happy about it as it's only an infant School and the paired junior school is awful! Our first choice is our nearest school but they take church attendance as a preference before distance, which I think is unfair. It's Church of England but not overly religious.
We aren't going to appeal though as we wouldn't win (most appeals don't unless you have special circumstances). We are going to let DD go and see how she enjoys school, we have been considering home education too so we have that to fall back on if we don't get on with school.
Nice to hear so many first choices though, I think here it was about 95% got their first choice.

We are in a similar position because the paired junior school is awful.... we submitted the appeal last Friday. My OH seems a lot more optimistic about the appeal than me. I think DS will be fine at the school we have been given, just would prefer him not to have to change schools again after 3 years.
