Welcome to the Forum - you might find you get a better response by posting in the 'areas section'. Just move down the page and you will find them.

Sorry, all the girls schools are still in the list. You would need to visit the websites of some of them to find out if they are co-ed or single sex unless in the name.

Some of those in Buckinghamshire would not be possible for where you live as you are too far away! There are 'distance' rules that would exclude you from quite a few of these schools.

And Bexley too applies distance criteria unless you happen to get one of the highest 180 scores out of the 3.5k plus children sitting the test. But if your child was that clever I doubt you'd need to send them to a school in Bexley when you live in Acton/Hammersmith!!

The Watford "grammars" are actually partially selective schools - they can only select 25% of their intake (about 45 places) on an academic exam. They also operate a catchment area - not sure that this extends as far as where you are Starday (but do check!).

Quoting above
'Slough:
Maths, Non-verbal Reasoning, Verbal Reasoning - Multiple Choice

Burnham Grammar School
Herschel Grammar School
Langley Grammar School
Slough Grammar School
St Bernard's Convent School '

Only Slough Grammar does Maths, NVR and VR. Langley, Herschel and St Bernard's do VR and NVR, and I think Burnham is part of the Bucks system which does only VR

Yes - it is - it's in the above list twice! I'm not sure the posted list is actually much help really -

Even for the schools that don't operate catchment/distance criteria, whilst you say you are prepared to travel, I suggest you really think long and hard what that would mean for your son, 5 days a week for 7 years, especially if he may want to be involved in after school activities, have time for homework and if most/all of his friends live far away.

If at all possible, I suggest you try to move near a school you like, or like a school near where you live. (Sorry if that's not what you want to hear, but long communtes can take a toll on children, greatly reducing the benfit of getting them into a "good" school.)
