Does anyone know what parts of Tunbridge Wells are in the catchment of Uplands, please?

Someone has mentioned to me that you can live in parts of Tunbridge Wells and still get into this East Sussex school - which looks like a good way of getting one bright child into the grammar system and the other slightly less bright into a decent comprehensive system!

I've just had a look at the link from Uplands web site to admissions on East Sussex web site and it appears that last year 30 children were admitted from Priority 6 ie outside the designated area, up to a distance of just over 10km. However don't rely on that figure as it will obviously change evry year.
What year is your younger child in? Depending on circumstances you may be able to move them to e feeder school for Uplands, moving them up a long way in the priority list!! Bit drastic but lots of people do it! If you live in Kent then they could do the 11+ as well if you felt it was appropriate but you would have a good school as a back up.
Slightly off this track but depending how long til they move schools you never know what the new Skinners Academy will turn out to be. We must all give it the benefit of the doubt and wish it evry success, it's what T Wells Needs !!

We are virtually in Southborough and often there are one or two children from this area that get a place at Uplands. I'm not sure how many there are who apply and don't get in though. To be on teh safe side I think that living the Rusthall/Frant side of TW would be best.

Make sure you're not too far out of TW! The catchment area for TWGGS this year was very small and parts of TW did not get places in the first round.
