Feel free to move to correct place, We currently live in Tunbridge Wells but are looking at moving to Crowborough i was just wondering if anyone else on this forum were in the same position and how do their boys get to school and does it work, there is a bus that goes at 07.54 from where we are moving and it says it arrives at 08.28 at the Cross Keys so not a problem but two mornings i have noticed it being very late is this the norm ???? Please help if you can. :?:

Try this link - it may give you alternative buses. We found one that took nearly twenty minutes off the journey to Skinners for DS1.

I haven't check but I thought it allocated places on distance. I'm not sure if it gives priority to KCC residents.

I'd read the OP as someone currently in TW looking to possibly move to Crowborough once their child had a place at a grammar.

I'm sure it's possible for travel from Crowborough to TW grammars - there are many Bennett and St Greg's children who live in Crowborough and travel in each day and also boys who travel to Skinners'.

Boys Grammar will only take children from out of county once all Kent boys in a selective area have a place. Then they will take OOA/OOC on distance. Occasionally, like this year, they will take children from Sussex but it is becoming a rarer and rarer thing.
