Just curious as have no children involved but wondered how far out distance wise AGGS has offered on first allocations this year.

I know of one girl who has been offered a place and she is in Knutsford, out of catchment.

Think as the crow flies Knutsford would still be in the 8 mile catchment if I'm right?

Seems so long ago now when I knew all the AGGS facts, so am a bit out of touch but is the catchment for there 8 miles? Can't remember.

About 7 miles.

My friend is warrington south and hasn't been offered waiting till April for second round offers and then appealing I think ? We never bothered have gone loreto instead as even out of area got first time offer we are also warrington south but dd said she didn't like Aggs that much lol,and so not bothering with hassle/stress of trying to get in :shock: loved Loreto on visit so that's her choice x :D she will be one of 2 going from her school though so big changes half an hour on bus when could walk to local very good comp , are we making the right decision ? Time will tell

I'm in exactly same boat as you nickiveg, I wanted dd to go to AGGS but she loved the open day at Loreto and said it felt right for her so she chose there and I acquiesced despite suspecting dd's opinion may have been partially formed by having friends accompany her on Loreto open day but not the other schools. Like you say it saves the stress of hoping your front door is 6 inches nearer the school than some other poor soul so I let dd have the final say against my better judgement really. They're all good schools but AGGS stood out from the crowd for me.

All things being equal, in 5 years time I'm sure we'll all be very happy with whichever school they go to.
