I have been a lurker for the past few months and have found this forum incredibly helpful, so thank you.
I live in Herts, close to the Bucks border.
Prior to results our first choice school was Chesham, followed by Parmiters, WBGS, Ricky.
My DS sat the Bucks 11+ and the Watford consortium exam.
He has passed the 11+ but got an unexpected and disappointingly low score of 211 in the Watford exams. This obviously writes off the WBGS etc..
Just wondering what our best move is now? Is there any point (if possible?) trying to investigate/appeal his low score in the consortium exams? They were our back up plan, with Chesham being first choice, but I am worried that all our eggs are now in one basket...
We live 9.6 miles away by driving. Looking at previous allocations I think we are in with a reasonable chance of a space?
Our local non consortium schools are Francis Coombe and then Kings Langley. I would be very unhappy with him attending these. I guess there is the possibility of applying to the grammars based in Aylesbury that seem to award places to all those who apply... but that would result in 80miles worth of school run per day
, or a house move,... which isn't an impossibility but I would rather avoid if possible...
Anyone have any suggestions?
Or a large brandy would do!
