Requesting for some expert opinion please... i live in Langley area but I can move to Bucks area as i don't have much of dependency on moving... i am planning to move into Dr. Challoners catchment for my daughter. Please suggest it's a good move. Also, please suggest any better school in Bucks area than DCHS.

Request for some suggestion here please as I want to decide something by this weekend. Thank you.

You will have to move by the end of October in order to be considered in the first round, but I imagine you know that. Which Bucks schools did you like when you visited? Many of them have a very different feel about them so you would have to see what you & your daughter like best, those are the sort of things other people can't tell you. Many have open mornings at the moment so you could still visit.
You should get admission to Burnham Grammar from Langley.

Are you waiting for Slough results too? Would you prefer Langley over a Bucks school if it meant you didn’t have to move (in a very tight time frame).

ETA it look alike you won’t get any Slough results until early next week.

Less than two weeks ago you were a "paying guest" in a house near Langley school and wanted to know how to provide evidence address to secure a place there. Now you want to move to Bucks in two weeks.

You appear to be playing the system. I'm out.

What do you mean suggest a better school than DrCH?! Sorry but that's just crazy. Surely you had all year to do your research and you are asking advice now?!

That would be Langley it seems.

Please also consider Upton Court Grammar School, Slough

Do keep in mind that these are last years results, this years are due out soon and i'd be surprised if Upton is still as high?

I actually have 2 DC at UCGS, (Y7 & Y10) it is an excellent school and both are very happy there but they are not normally so high up in the league tables which tbc, doesn't bother me at all.
