Would my son be in with a good chance of a place at Skinners with a score just above the 360 cut off, we are in the priority area. Not sure how high a score he would need in reality. He’s a good “all-rounder” academically, not overly sporty and a little unconfident in his abilities at times. I think a smaller school would suit him better.

Where are you in the priority area? If you're above the 360 cut off, allocation is not on score but siblings/ staff children/ distance etc. It came out to about Dunton Green last year.

We’re 1.4 miles as the crow flies.

I’d say you are almost guaranteed a place - they went out to past Sevenoaks last year. It’s the people who are one or two marks below the cut off that have more of a problem now...

Thanks Mum24; that’s reassuring to know.

I have two sons at Skinners' - one is very academic and not remotely sporty and did everything he could NOT to play rugby in Y7, but he's now in Y11 and still absolutely loving it (sport isn't the be all and end all, but they do take their rugby seriously!). My Y7 son is a rugby nut and less academic than my eldest, but is also loving it. It is such a fab school, I can't speak highly enough of it.....

You can 99.9999% be assured of a place living that close with a score over the 360 threshold :)
