Is there any boy living more than 5 mile away and got into Wilmington boys grammar school? We live 5.5 miles away as straight distance. I was wondering if we have any chance.

Wilmington offers places to those within set parishes which is probably why the boy living in Wrotham got in . They accept boys from parishes which are further away than 5 mikes but you have to live within one of those parishes . They then allocate on distances and the last place offered for the September 2017 in take was roughly about 3.98 miles . A list of the published parishes are on their website . We were offered gravesend Grammar as we lived just outside the cut off distance for Wilmington . Gravesendgal gave me some very helpful advice when ds joined in September . He seems to have settled in really well and thriving well with all his subjects and managing the distance well .

Does anyone know if all the boys from the named parishes were accepted last year? If my understanding is correct then the school cannot accept any ooc applicants before boys from the parishes?

Thanks

The parishes take priority and as such you have a good chance if you live in Longfield. Is Gravesend not closer to Longfield? I do know there is a coach Service that runs to
And from Longfield so you should be fine with transport .The Admissions officer Mrs Owen is very helpful and would suggest you give her a ring if you have any queries.

Well done to your daughter Gravesendgal. You have a lot of options open to you if she passed Kent and Medway . Mayfield and Rochester being very popular choices .
