This gives you info on previous years.

However a word of warning, Herschel have introduced a inner 4 mile radius area this year, and this is likely to affect both Herschel and Upton Court allocations.

thanks Tinkers for quick reply.

does that mean 'Herschel: rank down to 115, distance down to 8.066 miles' people got a seat until rank down to 115 and distance down to 8.066 miles and not beyond that..?

will that mean my DS will not get a seat in Herschel and similarly other schools in slough..?

That depends on precisely where you live, which no-one else can help you with, and on whether the pattern of last year is repeated, which others have already commented on/explained to you and no-one can predict. Long and short of it is that it looks like a long shot at the very best, but then I imagine you realised that when you decided to embark on this process in the first place?

It means that no one has a crystal ball and can easily predict what is going to happen this time with the Slough allocations.

I think you need to move by the end of this month, and it has to be a proper move, not just renting a flat to get the postcode.
