Whilst I know that many of those whose child did not reach the 121 will be unsympathetic to out of area kids, can someone please advise whether a child has any chance of obtaining a grammar place in Bucks.
If test is passed with 121plus, what is realistic chances of obtaining a Bucks grammar and does order come into it?
I know of a boy who was offered Dr Ch Grammar who lived in Herts on first round about 2/3 years ago- but do not understand how this happened when I read on forums that one has no chance of a place at DrC out of area?????
you should be fine for a place at chesham grammar, depending where in hertfordshire you live. i think DCHS or DCGS will be a long shot based on recent years allocations for those out of county.
Dont forget, you can always appeal to an independent appeal panel to any school which you are rejected from. so if you put DCHS or DCGS on the common application form high up the list and you are rejected by them, you can appeal on the grounds of oversubscription. you could then make your case to an independent appeal panel. it would be a bit of a long shot but you never know.
Chesham grammar, which is an excellent school by the way with a very impressive headmaster and great children, certainly had spaces last year......I was really impressed with Chesham
If you google (other search engines are available....) bucks school allocations you will find the distances allocated over a number of years and there is a page on this site which also has it)
