My son has scored 211, and we live in South Coventry and so are in the S Warks area, but outside the East Warks catchment.
- If we put the E Warks Rugby Schools down, is there a chance of him being accepted?
- Drastically, would it help if we moved 5 miles down the road the East Coventry which is in catchment?
- Should we still consider schools in the S circle? ANy chance of getting in?
Advice welcome please.
Before I start, I have to applaud you on your name. Great name. Wish I'd thought of that one.
There is more chance of being accepted into East Warks. East Warks certainly accepted out of catchment children on offer day last year. I don't know the minimum score required of out of catchment children. WCC may be able to advise.
East Warks have an inner and outer priority circle (and out of catchment) areas. It is easier to get into schools if you live in the inner circle, rather than outer circle, rather than be out of catchment. I really don't understand the fine detail of how the inner / outer circles work and how WCC determines the AQS for each area.However if you do move check the criteria and dates for proof of address. I have heard that it may have changed this year.
KES is notoriously difficult to get into. I have to say 211 wouldn't get you a place regardless of where you lived.
Alcester may be easier to get into but may still be borderline even if you move into catchment. A big investment with no guarantee of success.
