My daughter was told they wouldn’t hear until the end of April which seems a very long wait & will obviously impact on MA & SA results too 😬

Good luck to you both! So the MA results will probably be the end of April too then xx

My daughter said there were 3 for year 8 entry and 3 for year 9 entry- all girls (she went in at 1.30pm today). Not sure how many others there were in the morning.

 

yes we have to give our current school a term’s notice so need to know before end of April!!

Also in our audition letter, it said we would find out within two weeks - although my daughter did say they told her it would be end of April?

The audition letter for the year 7s said we’d hear within 2 weeks and we heard within a few days! Maybe they say a longer time scale so they don’t get people chasing them about results! I bet you’ll hear sooner than you think x

There were 3 boys & 3 girls in the Y10 audition group my daughter was in but she said there were older looking girls in the class before her so possibly a mixed Y10 & 11 group. Impossible to know for sure!

This may seem like a strange question but here it goes:

Once offers come from other schools and then we all start accepting, do RB ever update their waiting lists if they clear? Same question for other schools. 

 

Some people do decline offers and having seen schools and individuals post pupils with multiple offers (some up to four and five in years past) there will be those on waitlist who will get a call offering a place.  Royal maybe the dream school but we know of two families over the years who have decided against going citing differing reasons.  We have also know of two offers from wait list but these were not Year 7 entry.

I know of a young man who was offered a place at Royal from the Y7 wait list last year :) (This year, my DS is crossing his fingers and praying the same happens for him! 😂)!x

So if a schools waiting list is cleared as those on the wait list accept offers from other schools, what happens then? Does the waiting list get reallocated??

I think even if they accept offers from other schools they remain on the waitlist, unless they specifically ask to decline their place on the waitlist, I believe? I could be wrong x

We requested to be removed, as we didn’t want the uncertainty, otherwise the waitlist runs until the Easter of the following academic year even for candidates that are training at other vocational schools.
 

If the waitlist were to be exhausted, they would probably aim to recruit in the following audition cycle, but if a MA showed particular promise I guess they might take someone in via that route.

Our DC got yr7 waitlist. I haven’t seen that any girls have got waitlist on here, only boys. Is that normally the case?

I think the norm is equal number of girls & boys on WL but obviously not everyone who achieved this will be on this forum. 

Congratulations to your DD 🎉

There isn’t a set number, they only include children that already meet the requirements and they would happily take into White Lodge if a place becomes available. They aren’t trying to balance genders or fill a quota, so there is no way of knowing how many are on the list unless this information is shared with you by RBS. We were surprised and confused, and DD’s lovely JA teacher explained the process to us in detail.

Are any of the year 7 children on here going to the spring intensive next week? My ds is a bit apprehensive after he didn't get a place for September and the older boy he knows through his local dance school is in a different group. Just wondering if there are a few in the same group we could maybe do a zoom call for them (and us!) to say hello before they go next week.

I think my ds and your ds were in the audition together? Feel free to message me ( my ds is currently year 6) will be in the blue group and Jebsen).

My Ds is also in the blue group and Jebsen , he is only Y5  and doesn't  know anyone going. Has only stayed away from home for one night with family. He would like the opportunity to say hi if anyone was willing. Please pm me if so? 🙂

Just a question whilst we await MA results, do children attending elmhurst, tring or other vocational schools still attend associate classes/ are they allowed to? Just wondering how much movement to expect and if DD is lucky enough to make the waitlist how likely she could be to get a place.

They aren’t allowed to attend associates if they go to Elmhurst full time. I think Tring allow their students to do MA’s though xx

I know a someone in yda who does associates...I'm pretty sure hammond said in the open day they don't do associates either x 

 

When we looked at schools last year we were told that they do not allow associates other than for YDA where they seemed to encourage pupils to apply for RBS Mids and SAs.  I am not aware of any Tring pupils at Mids but a number have attended SAs in the last few years.  There have been a few who are training vocationally attend BalletBoost but not aware of any other associate programmes.
