Hi, have been lurking for a while now and find the forum very helpful. Our DD was assessed suitable for grammar school and we named the three grammars closest to us on the SCAF form (in Tonbridge and TWELLS). We were expecting to get Weald on distance (we are in Wealds second Band 12.6 miles away), not expecting TOGS (on score) nor TWGGS (out of catchment). We were offered Invicta which is 31 miles away in Maidstone (we are on westernmost border of Kent). This would require a one and a half hour journey by train and 3 changes of train - just about impossible....... Has anyone any experience of appeals upheld at Weald based on similar criteria? I believe last year they added an extra form due to similar issues. Thanks in advance for your responses.

Dear Samba

I have no knowledge of Weald, but if you go to appeal you should come up with as many reasons as possible for wanting a place at this school. Proximity can be one of them, but try not to give the impression you're only appealing against a 31 mile journey .......

Dear Etienne, many thanks for your response. We will definitely have to work on our strategy for an appeal.
