Often around this time of year Sally-Anne is able to post details of first preferences for the Bucks grammar schools. This was very useful to me 2 years ago as it was the first indication that DS might not get his first choice (previously boys from his school had always got into this school). He didn't, but we are very happy with his 2nd choice. Is this information available again this year?

Yes, but I haven't had time to collate it and post it! I will try to get around to it this week.

If I fail hopelessly, please bump this thread for me, scary.

Well, I have collated the numbers in a spreadsheet, but I am being driven demented by posting them in Code on the forum to make them legible!

I have passed the problem over to Dad40, who is a wiser tech owl than me, and he will hopefully sort them out for you.

If he is able to do so I will then merge it all into a new thread and add commentary.

BTW, please remember that they are not first choices - they are merely first preferences!

S-A

AHS      180   142   138
BHS      150   107   123
BGS      150    74    86
CGS      180    94   104
DCG      180   223   159

858 appeals lodged this year, with none of the appeal results included above, and no late testers either. A not dissimilar number of appeals to previous years, although possibly a little lower.

I must emphasise that this is the ROUGH GUIDE to allocations! :)

updated to include table
