Can't understand why we've been allocated NHGS to sit the 11+ when the form says the school location for the test is based on proximity and we are far closer to CH than NHGS?
The schools both use straight line distance for allocations, so I'm assuming that they are doing the same for the tests. If you're convinced that the distance to CH is closer then it may be worth checking with the school. I'm sure there is a simple explanation but I would want to clarify because distance would be an important factor in the following situation.
"If several pupils satisfy the first order criteria equally, then a range of supplementary criteria will be invoked, in this order:"
proximity of the child’s home to the school, with those living nearer accorded the highest priority. Distance will be measured using a straight line measurement from the pupil's home to the closest designated school gate. Distance will be calculated using the Local Authority's Geographical information System (GIS).
(b)To ensure consistency, all measurements will be carried out by the LA’s GIS system and no other method of measuring distance will be considered. Each property has a coordinate taken from Ordnance Survey ADDRESS-POINT data. This is the point which distance measurements will be taken from. If there is shared responsibility between parents, the home will be that place in which the child spends the majority of time in a school week when the school is in session.
