My daughter got a place at an independent school, but

Resolved Question:

Hi - my daughter got a place at an independent school, but never attended. We turned down the place in June for a Sep start. The school in question are now treating court action because they say we have to give 1 terms notice. I asked them to provide proof of financial loss, but they passed the case onto a lawyer. Can anyone advise if I should go to court and let the judge decide?
