@Milzmam - yes it is! 😄

That's amazing, your dd must be delighted. At least there is some movement. I'm still not that hopeful as my dd going into year 10 so I know she won't be near top of reserve list. Still hoping for a bursary though just more waiting xx

I wonder if they’ll let people know where they are on the list now that things have started to move ?

I have 2 on the reserve for MDS , but another of my pupils returns their MDS today due to accepting a different offer - so hopefully good news for someone soon

@tutugirl - we didn't know where we were on the wait list until we received the email last night offering the MDS and it said where we were on the list!  As far as I was aware unless you hear from them before the acceptance / decline deadline of 17th April then they won't answer the question of where you are on this list!!!  Hope this helps?

Wishing everyone the best of luck and hope you get the news you want!  We have one very happy and excited DD!

Yes all boys on that day looks like reserved list as my lad knew the other two lads and they are reserves too, fingers crossed though I suppose we won’t get any more info till after the 17th April as tring and Elmhurst auditions were this week for lower school, so depending on them and who has been given a place at RBS so hopefully there will be some movement over the next few weeks 

I haven't checked this feed for a couple of days and it looks like the reserve list is going down! Any news from the boys from that last audition @WrapsnBows? Woke up at 3am worrying about it - and there's plenty to be worrying about at the moment as it is! Wishing you all the best. And @Milzmam and everyone else waiting! Congratulations @CaleaLooking forward to hearing more good news stories. Stay safe x

Not at the moment I’ve seen a few posts of acceptance for all 4 schools but not if they are returning MDS and my DS spoke to the other Lads yesterday and nothing was said ....... this is really breaking the wine on a school night rule oh well just one more day each day of waiting lol.  
fingers crossed that the lists will start to move over the next few days x

Thanks @SpinningBoy, fingers crossed for you, the waiting is definitely the hardest part, especially during these long days at home x

Congratulations those who have had an MDS become available!! 💗 What lovely news during these times.

Am I right in thinking it's not a case of waiting untill after the 17th as stated in the email, they will be giving them out as and when they become available?

Hello, we went through this last easter so hopefully I can share our experience and it might help. Yes, @Dancemum1 you are right- it was certainly the case last year that as MDS awards were ‘handed back’ due to multiple offers, new MDS offers were made to people on the reserve list. Almost all the MDS awards that were available last year (and it was a small number last year) were handed out by the end of the time frame.  The discussion ‘opens’ for bursaries after the 2 weeks, (the 17th in this case) and depending on parents incomes, info you will have already given on the forms, funding offers will be made. It’s a real rollercoaster, but hang in there, the school were really helpful when you start to have those conversations. Wishing you all so much luck xx

Thanks @Mrs Butterfly really appreciate the insight as we've not been through any of this before. Financially I doubt we'd be able to do anything without an MDS so it may be the end of DD dream. They've so far not asked us for any financial information, is that normally after the the time frame given? 

So far we've found communication lacking but I'm wandering if this is due to the current climate?

No problem at all @Dancemum1, I really feel for you all, and remember all the feelings from last years journey. No one can actually prepare you for how emotional or stressful it really is! Last year we had to fill out lots of forms, including the financial forms at the point of registering at the school- and paying for the MDS recall audition (if memory serves me correctly). So all our financial info was known at the point of bursary discussions. Hope that helps- they may be doing things differently as it’s all new staff since this time last year. Stay safe everyone xx

Hmmmm - I have the impression that the reserve list is mostly year 7 top heavy. I can totally understand that as they do say MDS mostly available for the year 7 starters. 

Unfortunately I am getting realistic about not seeing a space come available in year 9. Still, fingers remain crossed and we'll see what happens after the 17th. In the meantime - do post if you receive good news. It's always good to hear dreams coming true. Stay safe x

@SpinningBoy nothing here I'm afraid, feels so bitter sweet, losing hope the more the days go on, keep.doing the lottery too, an MDS would feel like winning the lottery too at the minute 😬

Have patience folks.  

 

I know the wait is really, really difficult, but remember the school may be operating with limited staff at the moment.

 

At the best of times it can take a while to sort out the admin - right now it could take longer.

 

Take heart from @tutugirl's post - there will be good news to come for some.  

 

Wishing you all the best in your waiting

I know a y7 who’s been given a place from the waiting list so there is some movement. There’ll be more yet I’m sure.

Not heard a sausage this end. The 17th is on Friday - but then it's the weekend and I am wondering if we really won't hear until next week. Have you messaged them at all?

I think we will hear more next week but I doubt there will be much movement MDS wise as they seem to have been giving them out as they've been returned, I'm thinking most will have made their minds up by now knowing that other people are waiting on reserve lists 🤔 still crossing everything for everyone xxx
