Numbers on roll in all schools - might be useful for 12+ or those wondering about cohort sizes - interesting!

My daughter failed the 11+ the year before last and is now at a local school. She missed by 1 mark. Looking at your link in the above post (thank you very much) and the school i am interested in is Burnham Grammar, if i understand the tables correctly they only have 98 pupils currently in Year 7 with a 4 form intake (120?). Does this mean the school is not popular - i thought everyone was desperate for a Grammar and also if places were so available why dont they fill these up. I can understand needing to leave some free for 12+ and people who move but 22 spare places!!

Any explanations please

Burnham 12+ hopeful

Dear Guest

To keep up standards, Bucks Grammar Schools will only fill up spaces with children who have deemed to pass the entrance exam, eiher by...

1] Acheiving 121 or more in the 11 plus exam

2] Being successful in a selection appeal

3] Successfully passing the Late Transfer test [12/13+]

The 2 foundation Grammars [ RGS and Beaconsfield High ] have their own entrance exams post 11 plus.

Yes! I was looking for something else when I found it - I didn't know this information was in the public domain -

It is amazing what information there is available when you aren't looking for it.

I recently Googled an old friend's name (out of the usual curiosity - where is she now?) and a whole series of highly confidential business documents appeared!
