Congratulations to your DS :) .

Perhaps list your preferred schools on your CAF, in your / his true order of preference?

You need to post in the 'Birmingham etc...' regional section of the forum, though, for more detailed discussion of the merits / logistics re the various schools in your area.

I believe you live in Solihull from your first post so you may have some good local comprehensive options.In terms of grammars your options are KEFW,KE Aston and Bishops Vesey. You will have to decide on your order of preference and how your son would get to each of the schools should he gain a place.Have you been to see any of them with your son ?

Are you applying for a pupil premium place ? As Handsworth Boys does not have a separate cut off for pupil premium places which is what the n/a may mean.

Your son has the score for KE Handsworth for boys and may get places at KE Aston and Bishops Vesey possibly from the waiting list.Decide on your schools and put them down in your true order of preference.

Based on previous years all 3 are possible - put in your true order of preference.
