One of the biggest things to happen in our household this week was the release of the secondary school places. Having submitted our application, listing my daughters top 4 choices back in October, the 1st of March 2023 was the day we were allocated our place. Despite knowing that offers are usually only emailed after 5pm on the day, the day was spent watching the inbox, just in case they should come early. For us, the offer arrived at around 2.30pm and I am pleased to report that my daughter got her first choice of secondary school. She was pretty happy, and more so when she realised her 2 best friends will also be starting at the same school. It doesn’t seem possible that my first child starts secondary school in September.
