As someone we know has got in with that score. Distance of 10 miles


My DD has been refused a place, 128 score, 5.5miles. Above mentioned case is purely on 'Rank score' ?


Which LA are you in? With that score it sounds like another error.


Surrey county

No way would 128 not get a place at Upton,

As you are in the same LA as the others with high scores who also didn't get a place, I'd say there's definitely something more to this!

Best of luck sorting it out, please let us know how you get on

Edited to correct bad spelling!

I think it's clear now something went wrong for applications from Surrey to Slough grammar schools. If you are from Surrey and affected please add to the thread viewtopic.php?f=10&t=57459

Congratulations, I hope your twins enjoy Upton as much as my DD and DS do!



Thank you for kind words. I hope they enjoy it too.

@ Toad Mum

Do you have any advice regarding waiting lists for slough schools?
As you are an established member of this forum


Aside from that as for any state school, they have to be maintained at least until 31st December of year 7, in oversubscription criteria order and that one's position on them can move down as well as up, as DC being added must be placed on the list accordong to those criteria? No, sorry, not my area, so anything I know about a particular school will be from reading on here or looking at the school / LA website :) .
