I have heard a couple of people say that admission to WBGS as a result of the cross siblings rule is by no means a sure thing - and goes on distance if oversubscribed. We live in Pinner. Our DS is in Yr 5 and whilst he is extremely bright and will sit both the academic and music exams for the Consortium, we assumed he would be admitted anyway on cross siblings rule (as his sister is in an eligible year at WGGS). The historical stats tables on this forum state that in nearly every year that a cross siblings rule has been in effect that "ALL" were submitted (I assume that means all that applied got in). The only year this was not the case (of recorded data) was 2007 when the furtherest to be offered a place was near 10km away.viewtopic.php?f=18&t=10227
My question is whether anyone can shed any insight into this - or better still do any of you know of cross siblings that were admitted to WBGS this year from Pinner/Hatch End etc? It has kind of spooked us a little.
Thanks in advance
