DS scored 356 and we are OOC ( we are based in South Croydon )
Extremely disappointed as we were expecting a higher score especially when we saw how confident he was on the day after the exam. :-(
Realistically is there any school he can apply to with these scores especially as we
Are OOC ?
Can Someone please guide us and let us know of the grammar schools he can apply to ? Any previous records of OOC scores on previous years who got admission will give us a rough idea.

Any guidance will be highly appreciated !
Thanks in advance .

Based on previous years....

Judd is around 400
Skinners 370-375?
Dartford 380-390

Wilmington is nearly all catchment I believe.

I thought Wilmington had a catchment area? Surely south Croydon is too far?

Wilmington is all catchment (plus pupil premium, looked after children, siblings at WGSB or WGSG ) apart from 15 governor places. I'd imagine those would be around the 390 mark.

Catchment area small so doesn't cover South Croydon.

Hello all,

We're in Bexleyheath and boychild got 383. Would that be too low for Dartford? I know you can't know this year but what about historically?

Thanks so much!!

Skinners went down to 359 the last couple of years I believe, so you never know.

Gravesend. Anybody know how far they went? I think it was 14 miles? How would your son get to these schools, though?

It would have been enough 2 years ago but last year it was quite a lot higher - hard to know what this year will be - previous years it's been as low as 369
Best of luck

We are planning to move if he gets an offer .. we need to now think whether we can
Leave before December but not sure if we can make it . If 356 guarantees me a sit at dartford inner catchment then it's worth moving now by December else as a matter of fact any offfer from a
School and we can move there not a problem .
