Im sure you know that there are various different criteria that the LEA uses to assign places to children. I think the first criteria is 'looked after' children and those with special needs and the last one is distance to school. You've been unlucky but you can always try appealing to the LEA. No one has a 'right' to a place in any particular school, but if you want a different system based purely on waiting lists you could always go private.

There are other good schools in Lewes, Wallands, Malling and Western Road all seem to do well for the kids. if you have a particular reason for Southover - ie, you are a church goer, I'd suggest talking to the local vicar.
