Post subject:  House Move - need guidance

We are based out of Kings Heath and our DS has secured a spot with KECH boys - starting Sep 2021. We have always lived in King heath and now looking for an house move - but struggling to find a house that matches our requirement within the catchment. In the regard, need some suggestion/guidance on Son's admission incase we find a property outside the catchment. Will it impact his place which is already secured if we move out of the catchment? Any help here will be much appreciated.

Safest option is definitely to check with the school.
I don’t see that it would be a problem, if you’ve been living in catchment for years rather than just moving in catchment for a few months to secure a place then moving back out again.

I'm not familiar with local admissions but where we live this would be (rightly or wrongly) a red flag issue, beyond starting school in Y7.

As far as I’m aware your DS will still have that place. At the time of your application and acceptance you were within the catchment area. Therefore there is no change.

It isn't uncommon to have a requirement that the address on which the allocation is based, should remain the child's main address until the beginning of the first term. As mad? says, a change of address out of catchment often raises suspicions.
