I apologise if this is in the wrong section, but as it refers to schools in 2 boroughs I wasn't sure where to post!
Also, can I say I'm so glad to have stumbled upon the forum, I've been reading for a little while now and I'm amazed at how much I have learnt from you all. So thank you. I've got to the point now where a decision is looming, so if anyone can offer me any advice it would be much appreciated, as I'm tearing my hair out [somehow I feel I'm not alone on that one!
This is our situation [and I'm sorry if it's long winded], DC sat Kent and Medway, narrowly failed Medway, but passed Kent. The frustrating thing is, part of our village is run by Maidstone and most of it Medway - we are in the Medway bit, so this has given us a major headache over choosing a school. Unfortunately the pass mark wasn't a biggy [not sure if I'm allowed to post score?], so it makes it harder!
I was wondering if anyone could advise on the likelihood of an out of borough child getting into a Maidstone GS, especially if it's not a top score? We viewed a mixed academy that DS really liked, bonus is it has a Grammar stream, so if he's good enough he can get into that [if he gets in the school that is!].
I'm worried about listing out of borough GS's first if it is a totally unrealistic option, as this might affect our chances of getting him in the 'in borough' Academy?
If anyone has any thoughts, I would love to hear them. Thank you in advance.
