What is your 11+ score if you don't mind me asking? My son is in year 7 at Southend OoC, he got in off the waiting list last year. He loves it and doesn't mind the journey from Chelmsford each day.
Good to hear your son is enjoying himself and that the journey from Chelmsford is not onerous
I know there is rumour that the boys have not scored as highly (and no surprise it was the English which let him down), but with 333 I think we will just miss out
I have read that Southend added classes last year - how many boys are in each class? Also was Southend your 1st choice or Westcliffe, and does it even make a difference?
Thanks for any help you can provide, and good to have someone on the forum who has been through the pocess![/quote]
My son scored 332.9!! We put SHSB first as he loved it when we looked around. Yes class sizes in year 7 are now 30 but it doesn't seem to have made a difference. With the extra class being added at KEGs and CRGS, I think your chance of getting a grammar school place is quite good.
