Re: Waiting List Nonsuch and Wallington Girls for Sep 2024

Honestly, for an individual child the difference between two grammar schools is going to make little difference to their academic outcome. Remember, any quoted statistics are for the whole school population, not for your child. In any case schools rise & fall in the rankings, who knows where the...

Re: 11plus curriculum schedule needed

Will do. Are you happy to say which area you are in? It will make a difference to people's advice/schedules.

Re: 11plus curriculum schedule needed

You have posted this in "Maths". Would you like it moved to a more general 11 plus section, or to a specific area? This might be more relevant as different 11 plus areas require different levels of work, depending on whether they are super selective or not. You will of course get extremes ...

Re: HBS ALLOCATIONS MARCH 2024

It's a long time until September. There's likely to be further movement. There may still be people sitting on both private & state places, or people have to unexpectedly move due to job or personal.changes etc
It won't be to large numbers of places, though.

Re: Trafford consortium results October 2023

As you probably know, it's not done on percentage as it's a standardised score, so a full scores isn't even necessarily 100%.
It will give you some idea though

Re: Sibling Rule and Grammar Schools

I'm not local, but it will tell you clearly in the admissions criteria, which will be on the school websites.

Re: GLOUCESTERSHIRE ALLOCATIONS 2024

I'm not sure you will find any environment not dominated by these things, to be honest. DS's best friend at his GS was obsessed with one of the ones you mention & played in tournaments around the country. He's just graduated with a first in engineering from one of the top unis for his particular...

Re: GLOUCESTERSHIRE ALLOCATIONS 2024

Don't forget the stress & impact of having a huge number of exams. I think when I took my O levels back in the dark ages I had 15 or 16 exams. My youngest had something like 28 - 9 of them for science. Apart from anything, it's just exhausting. Some children will be more resilient in this sort o...

Not sure from where we got late applicants when we all applied together.
They will be people who either took the test late or made a latex application (due to moving house etc) after the deadline for consideration in the first round of allocations.
