Does anyone know what the cutoff for the admissions for Gravesend Grammar for Girls was this year? We're on the outshirts of Gravesham so were looking at there and Maidstone, however, due to problems with her moving schools at the time of the exams she got a lower score than expected (altough a pass non the less) which has prety much ruled out Maidstone.

I've phoned the office and they just directed me to the details on the admissions posted on there web page for the previously year?

The two local schools she was/and is at seemed to have bucked the trend on here as by daughter was the only girl to pass which 4 boys passed.

As far as I'm aware Gravesend Grammar for Girls do not take on score, but their oversubscription criteria which is distance to school.

According to the Gravesend Girld webpage the critiria first is:

Eligible girls who attend a maintained primary school in Gravesham and Swanscombe or one of the following: Bean CPS, Bronte School, Fawkham CEPS, Fawkham House Independent School, Gads Hill School, Hartley CPS, Knockhall CPS, Langafel CEPS, New Ash Green CJS, Our Lady of Hartley RCPS, St Joseph’s Convent School, Sedley’s CEPS, Steephill School. These places will be allocated in order of the highest aggregated score in the tests.

and I thought Maidstone Girls went on scores above 390 and then distance?

That's Maidstone Grammar (MGS, the boys' school). MGGS go on distance.

Have you also considered Invicta Grammar School in Maidstone? Given that you are some way out you are not certain of getting into MGGS anyway. Sometimes MGGS is oversubscribed, sometimes it's Invicta.

Maidstone Boys is the only GS in the town that uses score - apart from a test pass - as far as I know.

Are you sure you weren't accidently looking at the Maidstone Grammar School entry in the booklet? I have just checked the booklet online and can't see any reference in the Maidstone Girls' Grammar School entry to scores (which is on the previous page to the MGS entry).

Yes, sorry Kent99 you are correct. A couple of people have said that to me quoting the admissions boklet so assumed it was correct. Have checked the book and as you say that isn't the case which may be handy :)
