We are planning to move to Bucks later this year but it's subject to a house move. Our son will go to Year 6 in his current school however I have registered him to sit the 11+ exam in Sept 2016 (as an out of area applicant). We were hoping to send him to a selective private school so he has some familiarity with entrance exams but not 11+.
We are not sure when a move may happen as it depends on the house sale. It is however likely that we will sell our house (under offer) soon but so far haven't found a place to buy (chain fell through after Brexit) so may move in with family, who are fortunate to have a large house in catchment of a few grammar schools.
A few questions from a 11+ novice
1.If my son passes the 11+ does the 'result' hold for a timeframe? i.e what if we are not in the area until November? Will we still be able to apply for a grammar school then?
2. If we moved in with family they are limited ways to prove address since we won't be on the utility bill or have a formal rental agreement - does anyone know of situations like this? Our previous house will be sold so that can be proven.
We would prefer Dr Challoners as my son's cousins are there but we are moving to the area to be close to family so any grammar school would work - is there a better chance of getting into some schools on the late admissions? Since we don't have a house yet we can look at catchment for other schools.
