 Post subject: 12+
PostPosted: Wed Jan 24, 2007 4:18 pm 
Can anybody out there help me find out about 12+ :?:

My son scored 117 in the 11+ and we are appealing (30th Jan), but I wanted to try and find out out the 12+ to help me with "Plan B" if the Appeal is unsuccessful.

The sorts of questions I have are:
Does the 12+ really exist?
Do many people sit it?
Am I right in supposing that competition for entry at 12 is even more fierce, with places extremely few and far between at one's preferred 1st choice school - in our case Royal Latin in Buckingham?
Does anyone in this forum have any experience of 12+ or know of a similar Forum where I could go for advice?

Any help and pointers would be much appreciated.

Many thanks, PAP

Dear PAP

Have a look at this thread in the Bucks section:
viewtopic.php?t=1522
It will answer some of your questions.

Regards

Two booklets to read:

* the process

* what happened last year [see left hand index]

http://www.buckscc.gov.uk/bcc/content/i ... =177570625

It's impossible to say what places will be available - there are usually one or two joining the Royal Latin in Y8 - sometimes after an appeal -

Do ask more - but I hope your appeal is successful!

On the postive side ...You do get another chance to get a grammar place. Some LEA's don't do 12+ (including mine)

On the negative side you have to go through all the stress and worry again. Lots of kids find the school they end up going to is not as bad as first thought and their kids love it or are excelling.

So is 12+ all worth it ???


I'd say yes!! Count yourselves lucky in Bucks.... :(
