Langley is perceived to be the higher achiever and takes in a cohort that has a higher 11+ score on average. ( Langley has historically offered to 116/7 where Slough has historically offered to 111). I chose Slough over Langley 2 years ago due to the personality of my child and have not regretted it.... but Langley has a superb reputation.
I think it depends on your child and where you and she believes they will be happier.
It also depends on what strengths your child has...... if a school has a specialism then obviously there is excellent facilities/ teaching for that area which could benefit your child.

Up until this year, any Kendrick information has been scarce. This year we know a little more about the 11+, but unfortunately nothing at all about yr8 entry. :(

Hi Khan.
Sorry if I'm being a bit thick here?I don't understand how you have the choice of two offers?
I thought that although you may have qualified and been offered two places by 2 grammars,your LEA will allocated you a place at the one you put highest on your CAF?
Correct me if I'm wrong?
