Twinkles, Thanks for the info, much appreciated.
Don't be so modest, as you are the only one who has responded that makes you my expert
I'm In East Kent (Ashford) and hoping for either:
Highworth, Simon Langton or Invicta
Ok so my summary looks like this:
1) list schools in order of ACTUAL preference
2) Any high Schools even if No: 4 will become 1st choice as DD did'nt pass 11+
3) Any Grammars listed can be appealed after allocation
4) If Appeals are upheld (at 1 or more of the Grammar schools) Distance of our home to the School is IRRELEVANT
Seems about right I think.
Thanks for the well wishes, we are all a bit disappointed to be in this situation after being so so confident before the tests, but are equally hopeful for the appeals following a meeting with the HT and are all well up for the battle to come
