Good Morning All,

I have just realised that NHGS and skipton girls high school test date is same.

For someone who was preparing for both exams is very upsetting,
What's the best possible way to sit in both exams?
If NOT then which test should we sit in?

Thanks

Just wondering if the schools are doing this to avoid people travelling too far to school each day, encouraging them to decide which is the nearer school and therefore the best exam to take? Suspect not many will live in places that would be covered by both areas

SGHS is offering to priority area and then on distance outside the priority area - have you asked them if there are pupils admitted from where you live at present?

I have send them email and asked the reason normally they know other grammar schools test date.
I am assuming they doing it by purpose so people who definitely want SGHS would sit their exam regardless of other exams on same day and same with Calderdale kids.
But how about DS living in Bradford.

I will give them a ring and ask about my area

I am really not sure that you would get into Skipton from Bradford with the out of area places being awarded on distance, definitely need to check the distance of the last girl admitted last year
