I found out my daughter will be starting at Jessop Reception for Sept 2013 as well! Little apprehensive as she is one of the few that did not get into the primary school of the nursery she attends now as we live further than the rest!
Where are you based? We are on Milkwood Rd. It would be lovely to get together for a play in the park or something? It would be nice for the kids to know someone in the class. Most of my daughters friends are going to St Jude's.
Sorry you didn't get your first choice - whole thing is a nightmare!
My friend's son is going to Jessops. It was our second choice, we ended up at St Judes as it's only meters away from our house. I was really struggling with whether to put St Judes or Jessops first, though. I really liked the space at Jessops. Looks like a lovely school. Good luck!
