The application has been submitted – including the note to the Vicar outlining our “commitment” to the Church! In a few more weeks we hear if our eldest has got into Faith High. Indications are good.
Assuming all goes to plan, what do we do next? We still have Child 2 to get into school. Looking at the admissions criteria I am tempted to just play the sibling card and stop going to church. This effectively moves Child 2 from priority 2 to priority 5 on the list. Dropping down, to be sure, but she would still be above those first borns who don’t have the Vicar’s letter.
Not sure what the best plan is. Would dearly love to stop going to church. But should I risk it?
