Hello all,
My dd has scored score removed by Moderator . We do live in Warwickshire but we heard that Bukingham schools are good. If she gets place in any of the bukingham school we are ready to move there . Can anyone please let me know which school can I apply for?

Scores of 121 or more are not relevant in Bucks - Moderator

Places are allocated on distance so you will need to be realistic about chances.

Look at the Bucks section for details on the allocation profiles. If you have other children then you will need to consider any alternative school if they don't qualify.

(Allocation in S-A's first post)

Be sure that it is necessary to uproot your family for a school place.

Thanks Guest 55.

But as per the allocation Profile it shows that Aylesbury and chesham school will intake outer catchment area Pupils .
I am also not sure about how may places are offered for OA ? Is it safe to put Aylesbury in my preference list ?

No-one can predict how far the distance will go this year; places are allocated until the schools are full.

Sir Henry Floyd in Aylesbury is the most likely to go as far as Warwick and Chesham may ... Which did you prefer when you visited them?

No places are specifically 'reserved' for out of catchment students.

North Bucks is a cheaper area for housing than Chesham but it depends on where you need to get to for work.

I was clearly told by Bucks CC that the last date to provide address evidence (which I believe is council tax bill with an address inside the county) is 31st Oct which means one has to be in the county much before that. But if someone moves later then they will be considered if there are places in the schools after 2nd of March after clearing the waiting list.

Yes but you do not need to live in Bucks to get an offer of a place in a Bucks school.

People have applied from abroad before ...

The deadline to provide evidence of your normal home address (whether inside Bucks or not) for grammar schools was 1st October.

The deadline for address evidence for all other schools (Uppers and non-Bucks schools) is 31st October.

People visit schools before choosing them? Whatever next?
