Do many children from Coventry go on to Grammar schools outside the city? Also when would private schools need to be accepted?
I wondered what our chance are of getting in. LEA not being particularly helpful.
There are a handful of Coventry girls who go to RHS and Shottery. There are a few boys who go to LSS and K.E.S. It seems more boys go to LSS than K.E.S. from Coventry as the train journey to Rugby is easy. You see many boys at the station in the morning. RHS is more difficult as it requires a bus from Rugby.
The journey to Stratford is easy by car but would involve 1 hour return journey twice a day. There is a school bus from Coventry but it takes a long time and means getting up early and may be full as Coventry residents are last priority. A car share may work.
Change preferences and put your daughter on the waiting list. Coventry admissions is notoriously bad. They only have 3 preferences, whereas Warks allow 7. This means Coventry residents often put down 2 grammar schools and one Coventry school. Warks residents are luckier and some put down 3 or more grammar schools.
K.E.S. and Shottery are in priority area for some parts of Coventry. But with waiting lists address is almost irrelevant. You can try RHS or Shottery (Stratford Girls Grammar). It all depends on the score.
