Keep eye on their admissions policy but from last year it was August

2. The designated area
Reading School is unable to offer a place to every applicant. Therefore, we operate a ‘designated area’ as part of its oversubscription criteria. For more information on our oversubscription criteria, please read the relevant admissions policy.
Places will be offered to applicants who are ranked high enough according to the entrance test scores and who reside within the designated area. Only if there are further places available will applicants who live outside the designated area be considered. In order to be considered as living in the designated area, your address on 31st August 2017 will be the address that is used for entry into Year 7. The exception to this is if the family are returning from abroad to a previous home within the designated area (documentary evidence will be required to confirm this), are Crown Servants or members of the Armed Forces.

As Neo has pointed out from the admissions criteria, You will need to be in catchment by the end of August before starting year 6, otherwise you will be classed as ooc, even if you move before you submit your CAF.

Given how full some primaries are, it is worth looking at what primaries might have spaces if you need to move primary schools as well.
