Next year and for years to come, the first taste for parents searching for info on CLSG admissions will be long threads here and elsewhere detailing poor pre-exam logistics, incorrectly sent emails and, most of all, complete disregard for potential applicants post-offer. Fewer applications especially from those looking at state , fewer first choices, worse school. I think they want fewer applications. Because their location means many people can get there, they are over-run with people who see it as a possible, but very probably not first choice because another school is nearer.
They want fewer applicants and encourage only those who are very serious about taking a place to apply.
Perhaps in years to come if applications drop, they will be able to over-offer less and fewer offers will need to explode. They did the same last year and had even more applications this year. Why would they want to change their practice or have few applicants?
It's a very lucrative "business" from what I can see. Of course none of my analogies work perfectly. It might be that in future people are asked for their acceptance deposits up front and they are returned if they don't get a place.
It seems extreme, but maybe it will be the future. I believe the CLSG and CLSB bursaries work a bit differently to other indies in that many of them come from the City's Livery companies, and most of the others from the City of London itself through its charity-registered bursary trust. It's probably one of the reasons they can keep their fees a bit lower than the other indies - because outside agents are paying for all their scholarships.
However, the charitable status of the school itself has nothing to do with scholarships or bursaries, which are registered separately. They would prefer fewer, serious applicants and less application fees. They don't want lots of applicants because it's a big source of income for them.
It's not in the grander scheme. They want applicants who are serious about coming. Interesting about the SevenOaks scheme - I can see the thinking behind it. And interesting that it's gone now.
Fine balance between reducing the no of essentially time wasting applicants and putting off genuine first choice people. Page 8 of Previous topic Next topic.
