Hi, do anybody know if in CAF both Langley and Herschel school could be written down as two choices? Few years back, it used to be like, either you can put down Herschel or Langley, either of the two schools, writing down both schools names would basically resulted in wastage of one of your choices in CAF!Not sure if anything about this has been mentioned in the 11+ open evenings at these schools :shock:

Not sure what the admissions/catchment is for these two schools. That would be he main issue as far as I can see.

@mum

You could include both schools (or even all of the grammars in Slough) in your CAF. All these schools have slightly different admission criteria and different cut-off scores, although the entrance test is the same.
