I understand that there are in and out of county scores. Please can someone explain how the out of county scores work? I've seen here that the lowest ooc score to get in is 376 but is that for someone living near the parishes? Would you need to score very highly to get in from say, Lewisham or could you get in on 376 from that area? Or is it that they start at the top scores regardless of where you live?
Thanks

From the Dartford Grammar School Admissions Policy for 2016,, on the school's website:

C. OVER-SUBSCRIPTION CRITERIA
In the case of over-subscription, places are allocated in the order set out below. Within each section below,
students are ranked according to the applicant’s combined test scores in the Kent Tests. Please note that in
the case of tied scores, preference is given to the applicant living nearest to the school.*
1. Children who are or were previously Looked After (CLA): Boys under the age of 18 years for
whom the local authority (LA) provides accommodation by agreement with their parents/carers
(Section 22 of the Children Act 1989) or who ceased to be so because they were adopted or who
is the subject of a care order under Part IV of the Act.
2. Zone A - Up to a maximum of 90 places are reserved for boys whose primary residence (as
assessed by receipt of Child Benefit) lies within the Dartford Electoral Wards: Brent, Bean and
Darenth, Castle, Greenhithe, Heath, Joyce Green, Joydens Wood, Littlebrook, Longfield, New
Barn & Southfleet, Newtown, Princes, Stone, Sutton-at-Hone and Hawley, Swanscombe, Town,
West Hill, Wilmington. Maps indicating the defined area are given below in Appendix A. All
applicants eligible within this category will pay council tax to Dartford Borough Council. The
school is ‘full’ within Zone A when it has taken its quota of 90 pupils or when there are no more
candidates who have passed the tests and have named the school as a preference. Any places left
unfilled are added to the number of places available in category 3 of the oversubscription criteria.
3. The remaining 90 places will be available for all applicants regardless of address. (Please
note that all students applying to Dartford Grammar School including those in Zone A will be
ranked in this category for the purposes of allocation.)

Does anyone know if there are many children travelling up on the train from blackheath, hither green or lewisham ? and if 90 places are for in area places if more the 90 have applied can one assume that the remainder all go into the over subscription criteria then it is just decided on score only and not distance ?

There are children travelling on those lines.
The 90 places are first on score and then on distance. So, if two children have the same score, the child who lives nearer would get the place.
