Thank you Turtlegirl. Someone has told me that you can only put down top three preferred schools on LA form. Say for instance my DD sits for both the exams..The preferred schools will be more than 3 isn't so in this case how do we put down the preference
The numbers of schools you can list depends on your home LA. Three is the minimum number of preferences your LA is obliged to allow you - most areas allow more, but in fully-comprehensive LAs there is the general idea that as all the schools have more or less the same oversubscription criteria (apart from for faith schools this is normally a combination of 'distance' and 'sibling'), most people will go for their catchment school. This can indeed make it a bit difficult for those who are genuinely in the process of moving house, who may want / need to nominate more than one school in each area in case of delays, but on the other hand, there is no reason why any LA should set their system up to cater for the 11+ tourists.
If your current LA only allows three preferences to be listed but where you are moving to allows more, this might be an incentive to make sure that you move before the 31st October deadline? Bearing in one that you will also have to apply for an in-year primary school place for your child(ren).
