I had moved to here and got my son registered with local authority for primary school admission, but it seems the Hale, Altrincham is highly populated , my child still in waiting list nothing available for him in state school as well as prep school. What i have to do now??

Sorry to hear this.

What have the local authority (is it Trafford?) said to you? When is he/was he due to start? Have you applied via the normal system for a state school? Not sure what you mean by registered as there is a process you have to go thorugh? My understanding is that the LEA legally have to find you a place, even if this means at a school out of catchment/area. How old and what year?

Hopefully we can provide you with some more details with a bit more info from you.
