Hi Chad,

My son has passed and secured an average of 113 at Langley Grammar school. We have put Langley and Herschel both on our CAF form. What would happen if we shift in the catchment of these schools? Whats the procedure if we change our address now?

Looking forward to hear from you

Thanks

have a feeling that in most areas there is a date at which the address is defined - if you move after the date it may be considered to be a late application. Need to check the LEA sites for info


edit: suspect it is in here - but can't open the document on the computer I am using:

Agree Slough will have a date that decides where you reside and it has (in central berks) been moving towards New Year.

Good try Herman but West Berks is West and Slough is East, so B'nell, Wokingham and Reddin are central and W&B are Royal. :)

The address you give on the form must be your
permanent address on the closing date. You may be
asked for proof of this address.

What if I change my mind about my choice of
school after 31 October 2010?
Once you have made your preferences you will
not be allowed to change them without genuine
reasons for doing so, for example, if you have
recently moved address. Any changes must be
made in writing giving full reasons for the
changes.
Any request for changes to preference or rank
received before 31 October 2010 will be considered
as timely.
Please write to:-
Admissions & Access Team
Education & Children Services
Slough Borough Council, Town Hall, Bath Road
Slough SL1 3UQ
If your letter arrives after 31 October 2010, we will
only consider your request after all other
applications and requests, which arrived by the
closing date.


So phone them and ask!

Niether Langley or Herschel have a 'catchment' area'

Langley have no distance criteria until two people are tied on the same score for the last place then the nearest to the school get it.
Herschel have brought in selection by distance this year. so now allocate the first 70 place on score alone and then the rest on distance as long as you have achieved the qualifying score of 111.

So it would not affect Langley so much but would affect Herschel as their admission number is 120...... so if you lived the closest to the school then you do not have to achieve such a high score.... in fact you would have to achieve 111. There are 50 place allocated on a '111 and over score' & distance.
