Anyone has luck to get Thomas' deposit back ?

My son got a place in Thomas's Clapham and we paid deposit last November. However, due to the circumstance change, we are planning to move out of the area. I understand that the T's & C's we signed up for says that the deposit won't be return until he leaves the school at 11+ / 13+, we would like to pass the place to the child on the waiting list, but seems a bit unfair if we end up paying the full deposit as the school hasn't done much for our child.... I notice some discussion here on Eaton House, they are likely to return a large percentage of the deposit if the place is filled up before the start of the term, so wonder if anyone has experience with Thomas's Clapham ?

It does seem unfair given they have a waiting list which apparently has barely moved so far this year, another family will be grateful I am sure. The only private school I have heard of returning deposits is EH and only then very early in the process.
