The date I quote is that given bythe Registrar of Rugby School as being "when the results of the 11+ transfer to the local grammar schools are published."

The Registrar at Rugby School is wrong.
1. Does any one know how many children sat the exam last October? I know that for the September 2008 entry about 840 children sat for the three South Warwickshire grammar schools.
The number will be given on your child's 11+ results. If you can't wait that long, you could try calling admissions (like Rugbymum); they are extremely helpful and pleasant!
2. I have heard in the past that some parents have had a "nod and a wink" from their head teacher before the results. I am not sure if this is true or not. I can say that we have received no such indication from our head teacher. Has any one been given any kind of indication?
No nods or winks for us either, although they will have known before Christmas. We had a bumper crop at our school last year and I'm full of admiration for the staff for being able to keep it quite. This is not to say that I didn't read the result into everything they said, every glance and attitude. Had I guessed based on this, I would have gone the wrong way.
Not long now! Good luck!!
