Had a feeling they would once they became an Academy. Currently have a DS at the boys and DD has just sat the test. So, feeling slightly frustrated, but trying to be positive.
I hear you, I have opposite, dd in WGGS and waiting for results for ds to wgsb, very annoyed as I know some of the parents who called the adjudacators in and got the cross sibling policy removed in the first place. It was done on the basis they had a better chance to get their kids in by reducing the number of sibling placements. However it backfired. The extra places went to distance rule instead and meant that parents with diff sex children were disadvantaged compared with parents with single sex kids.
I resent having to do this twice but I did it with my eyes open, could have chosen different schools but ultimately the schools are excellent and worth the extra effort
