Overseas pupils are phoned???
Not unusual. I've known quite a few parents who have moved house during or just before school holidays Y6 to Y7, so as to minimise the disruption to the children. The Glos. 11+ can be sat overseas at the childs school, under exam conditions, although the main problem tends to be vocab - especially if the children have been in the USA for some time speaking American English.
So yes, Overseas pupils are 'phoned.
I also notice that there are some Y6's coming to Stroud High from Swindon this year, and overheard conversations of parents going to Ribston / HSFG from Swindon as well. I
wouldn't want my girls to do it, but different people have different priorities.
