If you look here you will see past Allocation Distances for Bucks grammar schools, and that will give you an idea of what might be realistic: http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/school ... n-profiles

Please note that to apply to some schools you need to be resident at the address you use to apply from on 1st April in the year preceding admission, i.e. 18 months beforehand.

I suggest that you identify your options on schools first and then post specifically for advice on them.

wouldn't Tiffin be a nicer journey, or does the any of the Slough catchments stretch that far.

If that is the straight line distance, then I am afraid that it would be very marginal indeed. To be brutally honest, I wouldn't put my child through the stress of the Bucks 11+ on the off-chance of a place.

I don't remember seeing anything negative about Clement Danes on here, are you talking about other forums? DG
