By not accepting the offer, you could risk losing the place as this may be given to a child on the waiting list for that school.  

Accepting the offer will not affect your child’s waiting list position for any of your higher preference schools, or influence the outcome of any appeal you may submit.

Waiting lists

Your child’s name will be automatically added to the waiting list for any higher preference schools than the one offered (unless your child did not achieve a high enough score in the grammar school selection test).

Being on a waiting list does not mean that a place will become available.
