I am sorry if I am intruding on this thread I am fairly new to the board.
Not a problem.
If I am successful on my appeal then what happens if we are out of catchment? I know they take into consideration milage from the school but at what point do they cut off and do they consider children on merit basis for Burnham Grammer.
If your appeal is successful the school allocation will depend solely on distance from the school gates, and score does not enter into it. Burnham has historically allocated well beyond catchment - you can view the past allocation distances here: http://www.elevenplusexams.co.uk/school ... n-profiles
Please note that they are only past distances, and are therefore only a rough guide to what might happen in future.
