Reading: are you in catchment? If not, according to the information on the school's website, you can forget that one
Slough - no idea, I'm afraid. Where does your DS fit against the admissions criteria for the schools?
Bucks: score is irrelevant once you have got at least 121. Which school do you live within sensible distance of, with regard to the allocation profiles that Sally-Anne has posted for reference? Don't the the schools allocate by catchment area first?

Please remove the Bucks score - it is against forum rules to post scores of 121 or more.

How do you expect anyone to advise you when we do not know your child? It is not rocket science. Apply to the school you feel, based on your visits and research or their admissions guidelines, is the best fit for YOUR DC. Then sanity check it by being sure DC can easily get to said school on public transport but doing a couple of trial runs with them this week (not half term).

Where do you live?

Which schools does your ds like?

How easy are they to get to?

Have you read the admissions policies?

Ok, but knowing the maths score as well would be helpful.

Before I consult the mystical dice of allocations, I need a bit more information please, along the lines of what kittymum has asked for:
Where do you live?
What gender is your child?
Their star sign?
Do you drive?
Which of the many schools in the areas have you visited and which did you prefer?

Three bedrooms as a minimum.
Detached.
A downstairs toilet.
Off-street parking.

Yes, I'm afraid my sarcasm filter was switched to 'low' this morning. It's interesting the way this forum has changed in the years I've been using it. As well as "genuine" parents seeking support and advice on their various situations, there has been a rash of very clipped, demanding posts such as this one. It's almost as if some people believe this is an extension of the county's admission service, here to provide answers to all of their questions. It isn't helped when the contextual information we need to make even the most basic recommendation is missing.

Despite it happening with increasing frequency, I remain astonished that so many people enter the process without a clue as to how it works and without even visiting the schools or considering the viability of the journeys to them.
