Many thanks

Suspect that you will have to wait for WP to reply following request for this information from WGSG. I see that for WGSB it was 704 metres.

As watford87 says, I'm still waiting for a reply from Watford Girls. Regarding the 704m, remember that this year the measurements are straight-line distances, where in the past they followed roads and paths, which would be longer.

WP - Is there usually a delay in WGGS responding to the request? Seems that all the other schools have responded to you. Does anyone know which tool the school would use to measure the straight line distance?

I still waiting on three schools (though Clement Danes have put part of the info on their website) -- it's not unprecedented.

I believe they use the distance measurement supplied by Herts, who use some commercial package that measures the straight-line distance from the Post Office address point of your home to the address point of the school.

Is there any news on the furthest distance for Watford Girls? My dd has still got a couple of years to go but it would be good to plan ahead and know if we are still within the catchment.

BTW thanks to WP for all the stats info. Really helped with my DS who applied this year.

Nothing yet, sorry. The 20 working days deadline for FoI is tomorrow, after which I will chase.
