Hi All,

Wondering if anyone else is starting to draw up a Plan B list of schools should their DD/DS not be successful in obtaining a Grammar place?

We live in SE18 & I'm starting to think this through & ideas are:

Greenwich Free School - went to open evening, very impressed with Head, principles & ethos. The nice thing is it would be a walk to school school & so mean friends located close by in our neighbourhood

Swallowing all my principles, looking at scholarship/bursary routes for independents:

Blackheath High
City of London School for Girls (accessible direct from DLR at Woolwich)

Does anyone have any other suggestions of schools I might not have thought of?

I know of someone who did not pass Bexley and Kent but managed to get a 50% scolarship at Colfes. The DC is coming to the end of year 7 now and is very happy there.

My plan B schools are also independent (not my first choice but all that is on offer where we live). I am looking at Bromley High, Babington House and Farringtons.

This was also my plan B- Independent schools.....Assuming you can get into them! The competition for good schools is higher than for grammar places. So, unfortunately, Indies are not plan B :wink:

The selective indies are hard to get into but there are a number of non selective in Bromley including Farringtons and Babington House.

Yes, but the author mentioned City of London and Blackheat...which are very selective.

Have you considered Jags and Sydenham High (girls) and Alleyns (mixed) in Dulwich/Sydenham areas? I think they all have school coach schemes and are pretty accessible by bus/train.
