Thank you so much for all your kind words. Yes NL is Nightingale Lane (The Vicarage) and we didn't get an alternative. I really had no idea how stressful this would be, I just thought we had done all the right things, name down at birth, said all the right things at the parents interview etc etc. The assessment was in another room but we could sit the other side of the room and listen in and I was blown away by my sons responses. I saw a side to him that I had never seen before. I guess that is why I thought well this is it, we are in! Yes my sons nursery school does have a few kids from each year go to Broomwood though he was the only one hoping to get in for 2013. I am hoping that with the movement in the area as mentioned by SusieL there is still a chance.
