I've just checked our information and the plan is that BV school day will not finish until 4.25 on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday next year as they plan to incorporate extra curricular activities as compulsory.
Something else to bare in mind for those to consider if planning a long commute to this school.

I think your estimate of the journey time is very optimistic.

No surprises there then.

The disparity between places for girls and boys will come back to bite the Trust again in the very near future though.

related to the new catchments and admission policy for this year.

There were some who found themselves out of area for all the schools and also some who were in catchment for schools that were not their nearest GS or their catchment GS was not their favoured GS

Thank you. And the objections were not supported/upheld i.e admissions changes for 2020 proceed as planned?

How does the preference system work for out of catchment..do they run a list of high scores mile after mile and offer the place for the highest score under that radius .If few more vacancies arise , they move to the next mile radius ?..
