Please can someone help me on the following concern. We have a decent secondary near us however we are also doing the 11plus exam to see if DC can get into grammar. Many children from our area go to the Bucks and Slough Grammars. Now assume DC passes, we would choose a Bucks school in the hope they get in and put that school as choice 1. Perhaps another Bucks school at choice 2, or a Slough school (assuming DC passes). Now say we put our local secondary on as choice 6 incase we do not allocated any of the grammars. Now will someone else who has put our local secondary in at preference 1 but lives much further away than us (distance/catchment is a criteria for this school), will they get allocated the school place at the secondary over us? Obviously I am assuming we do not get our 1st to 5th choice of grammars.
Hopefully I make some sense
