Aylesbury Grammar Previous Allocations

Post by Planningahead23 »

Hello,

Does anyone know why Aylesbury Grammar allocations reduced significantly on distance in 2022? It then jumped up again in 2023.

We are considering the school. Every year except 2022 we would have got in on distance. I know if we prefer it we should put it in the form anyway but want to manage expectations of DS.

Any insights appreciated!

It's hard to know. The popularity of schools waxes & wanes. There are a couple of possibilities:
The distance difference could actually be accounted for by very few pupils - it could be one or two (I have no idea if it is, by the way)
People could have opted for fewer private schools with uncertainties around COVID etc.
There really is no way of knowing. If it is your first choice, list it first. If he doesn't get in on March 1st he may get in from the waiting list.
