That is different then last year. Does the letter ask you to phone about funding? It is usually during this call they inform you. Perhaps it is different this year.

Yeah does say you can call to discuss financial circumstances and possible bursary assistance

I have moved a couple of posts into the pinned  "Questions about Lower Schools" and "Questions about Upper Schools" threads respectively as they were more general questions and not specific to 2018 audition results.

@Seaside H the last group that auditioned for Hammond haven't even did the nvr test, they ran out of time due to the amount they allowed to attend. I though they would maybe catch them Wednesday at finals but they never did .

@Picturesinthefirelight last year my dd did one at the audition then the maths and English papers were sent to school. It was on the timetable we were sent but they had so many kids at the last audition they ran over

DD is on reserve for MDS at Hammond as expected. Just had a chat with the school and they told me where she was on the list. Am very proud as she's much higher up than I thought she'd be! They've offered us a bursary so she'll be there in September whatever happens. 

Good luck to everyone still waiting!

I rang main number, pressed 1 for reception and asked for Janet Starmer. I called just before 9am. 

Fingers crossed you get through soon.

Poor Janet!

 

(who is lovely & so knowledgable about all matters MDS/Dada etc)

She is lovely isn't she? And so patient and calm talking to me when she must have about 10 people on call waiting!

It's a no for my DD year 10 entrant for Elmhurst.  She has her Hammond offer and I've spoken to Janet who has explained she won't get an MDS because of being year 10, but we have a lovely bursary offer!  So pleased with that, so onwards with our planning for September!

Hammond have also offered my dd 50% bursary and said shes not high enough for any movement to affect her. I know it's a lot of money still but I'm going to try and see if I can raise the remaining funds. My dd has worked with a professional dance company recently and they said they'd help too. So for us still a little bit in limbo. My dd knows it's not guaranteed just yet but We'll give it our best shot.

I can't guarantee this, its hearsay at the moment but I have a feeling another Hammond MDS may have just become available.

I know there were at least two children at Hammond funding last week waiting for Elmhurst results so that might cause movement too.
