In Essex there are no catchment for Grammer schools, that it why it is so difficult to get into them. At least 40% of the students travel in every day from London, some from Hertfordshore, Kent, Cambridge, Suffolk and even further afield. We had a talk at are school from the Consortium of selective schools about transferring to senior school, but they only told us about Essex schools that we could apply for and a maximum of 4 (to include all our choices, Grammer and Comprehensive). I don't know how it is that so many children are able to apply from London and other Counties and where they get there information, but we are certainly not given information on schools in other Counties.

I did go to "Transfering to secondary Education" But this was done only at Slough Grammar for those wanting to go there. We went along on the off chance. We were told there that only one form could be filled in and where you wanted to take the exam had to be the first Grammar school of choice.
We are outside Slough but there is no specific catchment area as there is a consortium- obviously the same as in Essex eccept that we could list up to 6 schools.
How is it that so many places are given to those much further away when there is all this fuss about "Having the right address"?
Thank goodness we put 3 non-selectives down and the grammars in 4th and 5th place. Now we will be sweating on getting the best of those 3!!!!
