Hi everyone, I need some advice on what to say in an application. Last week I had a horrible experience. I had arranged to visit a school and they were doing their visits in shifts and so I managed to book a visit for their last slot. The school was quite a drive away from my house but on the way there, I was involved in a car accident - just one of those things due to bad road conditions. I am still really shaken up from it and had minor injuries. This meant I missed the school visit but I phoned them when I got back from hospital to explain that I hadn't just not bothered turning up. I briefly mentioned the accident and asked the secretary to pass on my apologies to the Head. She emailed me the application pack and said I was welcome to still apply. I couldn't schedule another visit as they aren't holding any more (and I no longer have a car to get there now). I'm not sure how to handle this situation. I want to mention that I was going to visit the school in my supporting statement (as usually I put in a little paragraph about what I like about the school) but I'm not sure what to say. I don't really want to write "I was on my way to visit but unfortunately had an accident". But it's not a case of not being able to visit because I fully intended to. Thanks for any advice, I just feel like it's one piece of bad luck after another lately!
