Triplets off to different schools

Triplets set for different schools

Triplets Josh, Max and Leanne wanted to go to the same place but were given places at THREE different schools.

Max has got a place at the school they all wanted to go to most, but at the moment Leanne and Josh will trying on two other school uniforms for size.

Going to different schools may make things like organising family holidays more complicated, as their term dates could be slightly different.

The triplets' parents are planning to appeal against the decision, as they still want them to go to the same school.
