Does anyone know if the now year 6's in Medway are from a high birth year? Would appreciate some info on where to find out this info

Don't know specifically about Medway, but certainly it is in London. I've friends all around London and those with kids in year 6 are all in schools where they had to fit in an extra classroom somewhere.

I know that Medway's birth rates went down to a low point and the current yr 8s are the bottom of that and then it started to go up again - but I don't know how sharply. If you google kent education advice you will find a site with info on this and much else

Hi Samlet, yes I can see that its starting to increase and that site you mentioned is very informative.

Don't suppose you know of anyone that has previously had success in being offered a space at RGS or moreso FP after a Kent pass and appeal?

I'm afraid I don't - the Kent DDs at RGS all took the Medway test. And I don't know of anyone at RGS who got in after appeal (although in my DD's year they took girls who passed on review which equals a pass at pass mark - she is Yr8 with the low birth rate) as their entry mark is above the pass mark.

Sorry it's not better news.
