Thank you for your guidance. My DD got a score of 200 which is obviously lower than previous years cut off points. Seems unrealistic she would get in at a Bham GS.
So confusing - I do hope other parents reply as personal experiences are highly invaluable.
I'm afraid 200 is unlikely to get you a B'ham consortium school- but place it on your CAF anyway. I know a couple of dc -but not personally-(both in year 7) who go to SGGS from Solihull by train & it certainly is doable. I personally think it would be easy to send in pairs than alone so you need to find out if there are others who might be willing to join you. Car journey times to SGGS are tortuous to be honest.
