Hi All,

we are living in Milton Keynes.
My son is in Year 4, he is currently preparing for 11+.

we are thinking of moving into the catchment.
Some people say I should be living in the catchment 2 years before 11+ exam
Some say I can move after my passes 11+

Can someone guide me on this? Is there any website where I can find by when I should be living in the catchment?

Thank you

The Bucks CC website?

Should have details of all the schools' admissions criteria, or at least links to them.

Or look under 'Admissions' on the individual schools' websites.

It's good that you're thinking about this now rather than after the test!

Hi Deb,

Thank you for sharing the pdf. There is information about the catchment, but there is no information about by when I should be moving into the catchment. Are there any other sources to find this information?

There is that information. It says you have to live in the catchment by 31st October on the year you apply and have continually lived there (and still live there) until 31st October on the year of starting at the school. It also says what criteria have to me met for it to be considered as the child's main residence.

5.1.5. Siblings (as defined above) of boys who have previously been on the roll of Aylesbury Grammar School.
5.1.6. Boys who have exceptional medical or social needs which can only be met at Aylesbury Grammar School, and no other school, where their application for admission is supported by written evidence from a doctor, social worker, educational welfare officer or other appropriately qualified person confirming this.

5.1.8. All other boys.


The Applicant’s Home Address
6.1. The applicant boy's home address will be the residential address of his parent at which he
lives and sleeps for more than 50% of his time from Sunday night to Thursday night during
term time (unless it is accommodation at a boarding school). It will be the address that is
registered for the purpose of receiving Child Benefit (if eligible) and where the applicant boy

to the intended home address where the application is supported by an official government
letter confirming the intended relocation date and home address. A unit postal address or
quartering area address will be sufficient if the new home address is not kno

Main thing to bear in mind is that the results only come out a week before the deadline for applications. So you won’t be able to see if he passes and then move.
