Hi there, I am pleased to say DS passed the Kent test. He failed the Bexley test by 14 points so I wasnt holding my breath for the Kent. I even went as far as thinking he may have scrapped through on a ht appeal but he got 129 129 and 140. A total score of 398.

We went to look at DGBS and he fell in love with it. We are putting it as first choice followed by Wilmington. I will be pleased if he gets either as he liked both.

We are in zone A and having spoken to the assistant ht at the opening evening, he said we have a good chance of getting into Dartford. Can anybody offer any advice on how true this may be.

Many thanks

Sparky

Thanks for the speedy reply, would this be based on the fact that we are in zone a and he passed or would it be based on his actual score?

The place would be because you're are in zone a and have passed, scores would only become an issue if boys applying from zone a out numbered the places available. Highly unlikely so if you put dgs first then 99.9% sure you would get a place.

Yes I've heard Zone A get preference, so does that mean a score of 375 or even 360 is 99.9% guaranteed a place? :mrgreen:

HI Malibu,

Yes it does. If you live in zone A, you just need a pass.

I hope that there are not 150 boys in zone A that want to go to DGS!
My son scored 420 and is hoping for a place based on score, we live just outside zone A and DGS still feels like our 'local' grammar school.
