Where do you live at the moment? Is you elder DC able to commute to KECHB/G initially, if you have difficulty placing your younger one?

Lots of people apply with the intention of moving closer if a place is offered.
I know of many families who moved to Kings Heath/area for that reason including a few on our street; when dd got her CHG place, we moved too :)

What is the likely position on mid-year vacancies for a year 2 / 3 sibling, though? In the area with which I am familiar (admittedly not in Birmingham) moving schools can be extremely difficult, hence the number that go to appeal.

We moved to a house barely 200m from a 4 form entry primary school when dc5 was in Reception.
He never received a place - stayed at home until Y2 when we accepted a place at a good school a little further away.
However the start of Y3 is when places often do become available in schools or at least, appeals can be accepted as there are no longer legal class size limits then.

As I said before, quite a few families do consider moving when they know they have a GS place - but this poster seems a little unsure generally about plans :?

I can say without a shadow of doubt, that this is the place for you...
http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for ... 62666.html

2 miles from Camp Hill school, 2 miles from the City Centre, direct access to Cannon Hill Park from the end of the street.
What's not to like :wink: :wink: :wink:

Yes, we only consider when our DS got a place in Grammar school and dont want to risk the whole family if not getting in the place. Thanks for understanding. I will see how it goes with public transport from Rugby for a short time but not the long term travel plan until we get a suitable place to stay especially for our little girl.

I’m a little confused - if you live in Rugby, why not go to a Rugby GS?
