City of London Presentation Advice

Post by kati10705 » Thu Apr 28, 2011 2:11 pm

I have been advised by the Admissions Office to write to the City of London Corporation to see if they would 'present' my daughter for entry into Year 7 2012. I've read through the excellent advice on this forum, but I'm still very confused as to what I should do. I wondered if there are any other parents who have been through this process who can offer some advice.

My main questions are:

1. When I write to the Town Clerks office at the City of London Corporation, am I just writing to enquire about whether there are any presentations, and how to apply; or is my letter the application?

2. If my letter is the application, then what am I supposed to write?

Thanks in advance for any advice you can give me.

Katie....I have no knowledge personally but I have found the Corporation staff really helpful if you ring them and speak to them first on different matters. They usually chat quite nicely and off the record - you may find this approach helpful!

The Parish of St. Sepulchre's (Ex CH Territory) presented 3 scholars, by competitive examination, in the 40s.----this was how I got to CH.
I don't know if they still do, but it may be only for children whose Parent, or Parents work in the Parish.

Worth a try !
