We are very lucky to have a realistic choice of three grammar schools within a reasonable travel time. Do we need to still list a fourth non-grammar school? I cannot imagine not getting an offer from the first three schools.

Just imagine a worst case scenario - wouldn't you kick yourself?

It is always prudent actually to name a school which doesn't depend on scores or a combination of score / place of residence etc. Otherwise, if - despite even what seem to be reasonable expectations - the selective preferences don't work out, your LA will allocate you a place at the nearest unsubscribed school, which may not be at all what you would find acceptable.

Thank you. The local non-grammar has a terrible reputation. A fourth choice sounds sensible.
