Does anyone know what happens if you move house after offer day, ie 3rd March, can it affect the offer of a place? We are hoping for Stroud High (at the moment live round the corner) but are looking at a possible house move in the Summer. Role on March - the time seems to be going really slowly!

How far away are you looking to move?

Distance from school isn't a deciding factor for the grammars - exam result is. The only thing for you to consider is your daughters after-school social and transport to school!

Capers,thats not entirely true with regard to distance from the school with grammars-For example,Crypt admissions criteria state-

Where there are a number of pupils with an equal qualifying
score around the 112th place, the following criteria shall be used to determine those who
shall be offered places :
1. Children in Public Care (Looked after children).
2. Children who have an authenticated medical reason for attending
3. Children who will have siblings attending the school when the younger child is
4. Children living in the priority catchment area normally served by The Crypt
School with the strongest geographical claim, measured in a direct line to Main
Entrance of the School Building. Ease of access to the school or other schools will
be taken into consideration.

I don't know if other grammars in Gloucestershire are the same but it's worth noting! Although I am sure that after a place has been offered on March 3rd then this would not have a bearing...
