Just wanted some advice please.
My DD scored 116 so did not hit the golden 121 for a grammar school place.
I just wondered if anyone else had successfully got a place after Review/Appeal with this score?
Also, as we live in Beds, so therefore out of catchment, do we still get a report from our headteacher to support our Review?
My DD is bright - had straight level 3s in KS1 and is predicted level 5s and taking level 6 for SATS in May.
Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks!

It would be worth reading the Q&As as you will find answers to questions you haven't even thought of yet! :)

Have you not had a copy of the Bucks Guide "MOVING UP TO SECONDARY SCHOOL"?
      Quote:
      If your child goes to a
      Buckinghamshire LA primary or
      Partner school, you should ask their
      headteacher for a Selection Review
      pack. This contains the forms you
      need and information about the
      Selection Review Process.
      You have until 7 November 2014
      to return the Selection Review
      Request Form and your supporting
      information.

      If your child goes to any other
      school, please ask us for a Selection
      Review pack by completing the form
      on our website –
      http://www.buckscc.gov.uk/selection-review-info
      If you do not have access to the
      internet, please request your
      Selection Review pack by calling
      01296 383250
      . Do this immediately
      as you will only have until
      7 November 2014 to return the
      form and supporting information.
      Please let us know your child’s
      name, date of birth, home address
      and current school when you
      contact us. Please also give us your
      daytime telephone number.
      The review pack will also contain
      a Headteacher’s Selection Review
      Summary Sheet which headteachers
      can complete so that the Selection
      Review Panel has up-to-date
      information about your child’s
      performance at school. It will be for
      you to decide if you wish to include
      the headteacher’s form with your
      review paperwork.

Thank you. I requested the Selection Review pack online earlier, so hopefully when that turns up it will answer my questions regarding reports etc.
If anyone else can advise in the meantime, I would be grateful - I am just conscious of the short time scale we have to do all this and with a week of it being half term!

Not sure what else you want to know. The quote above tells you that your headteacher should fill in a report (i.e. the official selection review summary sheet).

It is open to you to provide any other academic evidence (excluding school work):

I went through this last year with my daughter she scored 112 and appealed unsucsessfully and I have had my son sit the 11 plus this year thankfully he passed but at the parents talk about the test we were told they had had sucsessful appeals from 114 and above so hope that makes you feel better
