Dear All, I am trying to absorb all the information available about the 11 + process, and I am slightly confused about how the selective (grammar) schools selection work. Although they are based on test results, they all also have on their pages information which indicates that they give priority to local children. Yet, I see based on various posts that a lot of children travel a long way to these schools / apply to many - often quite far away from each other (Bexley / Orpington). Can someone please provide some realistic view on how material the proximity is? For e.g. if I currently live in another borough, how much are the chances of my children reduced compared to the local children? Many thanks in advance for all your thoughts.
