Q & A

Don't sit there scratching your head! If you have our Enhanced Membership, then we'll provide clear and honest answers to your complex questions on school admissions and appeals. We have listed your popular queries here.

You will need to sign in to see the answers. If you want to ask a question, there's a little form at the bottom of every Q&A or just drop us an email. If you have Basic Membership and want to upgrade your package so that you can ask questions by email, then please get in touch.

You can filter the questions by selecting your category from the list on the right. (Don't worry, answers to all sensitive questions that relate to your specific circumstances are emailed directly to you - we only put generic Q&As on the site).
