Aimoisi, you may be able to help me!
We live in Reading and I understand that few kids based in Reading/Earley get through in Grammar schools in Slough. I am not a catholic, so St Bernard may not be a possibility but interested in Herschel mainly (for Sept 2017 entry).
Do they need to score more marks in the CEM 11plus as they are based far away from the school? or
Is it that they have to be over the normal cut-off and then it is based on the distance from school?
Sandra, I'm not clear why you keep asking the same question when several people have pointed you in the right direction for the admission criteria. I understand that you are asking (in some of your posts) how the students who are going there actually got in, ie whether it was on score or whether they were lucky with distance, but you do have all the facts about the admission criteria. Maybe you could ask the schools?
