Yes Jean.Brodie ,
exactly same plan. Preparing for Grammar as first choice and keeping doors open for indy.
yes Stanmore is not very far.
One question I do have is: at what point should I start preparing my DS if I wanted to have an indie school as a realistic back up option?
I know that a fair number of local parents, this year particularly, are putting a lot of effort into preparing for indie as well as SW Herts 11 plus. This is come from the fact that there is a projected short fall of school places in SW Herts for the next sitting. People are not prepared to wait to find out if their DC will be one of the ones without a local school place and are making sure there is a solid fall back option.
With more people looking to gain an indie place as a safe guard against not getting a ranked school place, will this push up the cut off marks for gaining a place at an indie?
