Hi everyone

Hope you are all keeping well. Is it too early to start this thread? In the current context of what is going on in the country/world, 11+ doesn't seem very important but the reality is that we have DCs who are hoping to sit it come September.

This is a positive space where we can share worries, suggestions and guidance.

Hello! I have a Y5 who is sitting the exam for 2022 entry, and is hoping to join an older sibling who is currently in Y7 at AGS. I wasn’t initially concerned about postponements to the exam (thinking Covid would only affect the 2021 cohort), but now that schools have closed I’m very concerned that we could have a repeat of the Birmingham/Warwickshire debacle. Fingers crossed that lessons have been learned.

Hopefully as the year goes by things will gradually improve.

We were very lucky in the end to sit the exam in November .

This year they need to keep bham and warks on the same day.

Does anyone know about a Consultation regarding reducing catchment circle for KES Stratford? I missed it and there is no information on the school's website either.

September 2021 Admissions Policy:
http://www.kes.net/files/cms/1988_M%20-%20Admissions%20Policy%202021.pdf

Priority Circle: The priority circle for King Edward VI School and Stratford Girls’ Grammar School is based on a circle with a radius of 16.885 miles drawn from the Fountain in Rother Street, Stratford-upon-Avon (half-way between the two schools) to the County boundary south of Long Compton. In drawing a priority circle in this manner,
the schools are able to comply with their duty following the Greenwich Judgement
(1989). Evidence will be required to prove that the child is resident within the Priority
circle by the deadline of 11.59pm on Thursday 31st December 2020.


September 2022 Admissions Policy:
http://www.kes.net/files/cms/2131_M%20-%20Admissions%20Policy%202022.pdf

Priority Circles: The priority circles for King Edward VI School are based on circles
drawn from the Fountain in Rother Street, Stratford-upon-Avon. The inner priority circle
is 13 miles and the outer priority circle is 16.885 miles to the County boundary south of
Long Compton. In drawing priority circles in this manner, the school is able to comply
with its duty following the Greenwich Judgement (1989). Evidence will be required to
prove that the child is resident within the priority circles by the deadline of 11.59pm on
31st December 2021.


That would imply that there were no (serious) objections, assuming that the main aims of the consultation were to introduce an inner priority area and to decouple the school from the SGGS policy?

(Not in your area, but I do have an interest in school admissions policies :)).

Thanks for starting this thread.

I'm on round 2 of this. Son got into LSS in 2020 and aiming for RHS for daughter in 2022.

Does anyone know when you register for the 11+ test - I think it's in May is it?

I put the dates and reminders in my calendar last time (for everything - applications, proof of address, test dates) as I was so scared I'd miss something and mess up her chances.
