I am new to this site & looking for some advice.
My husbands new job means we are looking to move to Stratford Upon Avon as soon as possible and we will be applying for a secondary school this year for the 2014 entry.
We don't have the 11+ where we currently live and I'm struggling to understand the system. What I would like to know is how hard it is to get into the grammar school? For the sake of argument, say my daughter achieves the required pass mark, will she automatically get a place? Or do most children pass and they take the nearest children geographically?
Out of interest, is the Stratford High school the only other secondary school or can you apply to near by schools? I believe she can apply to Alcester grammar too?
I'd appreciate any advice, including where to move to!
Thanks in advance
