Hi, DS qualified in transfer test. Distance 3.18 miles from BGS and did not get offer. As it has stopped at 3.04 miles, is there any chance in second round? Normally what is the movement every year?

DS, however got place offered in JHGS distance 10.58 miles.

Any information from last year's first round allocation of BGS and how it moved would be really helpful.

Many thanks,


There wasn't much movement last year but BGS did increase from about 6.5 miles to about 8 in later rounds. I would be surprised if you didn't get a place in later rounds, but no-one knows what will really happen.

Any one knows waiting list movements for Dr challoners girls for last few years? We live in Ricky and haven't got through (many girls have last year from here so were hopeful). Wondering if we stand a chance in later waiting lists and by when?

We have SCD on offer which is great but DC keen on DCH.

How far away are you (straight line distance)? The distance has gone down by a long way this year, and there was little movement last year, so unless you are very close to the cut off I wouldn't get your daughter's hopes up too much.
ETA: I've just had a look and it is 8 or 9 miles, so I think you can be pretty sure it won't go that far. Last year it went to about 5 miles, so those children must have been siblings or qualified in some other way rather than distance? Unless I'm getting my distances wrong.


No, Ricky is 4.4 miles, so hopwfully some chance in later lists I'd like to think.

Ah, I must have clicked on the map incorrectly. I did think they weer closer than that. It's still a big ask to move that much though, think of the area covered in an increase of 3 miles in all directions.
(eta I somehow managed to click the journey there and back!)

Which distance calculator are you all using, please?

You can use google maps. If you click on where you want as the starting point, then right click and select "measure distance", you then drag it to where you want to measure the distance to. It may not be exactly the same as BCC use, but it will give you a rough idea.


Thanks Scarymum.
We are 14.7 for AGS.
Any chances on the waiting list for 2nd round??

You are pretty close, Bepositive, but of course no-one knows how the waiting lists will move. Worth staying on it though.

Also is it true that if we go on the waiting list, and a place becomes free it's accepted automatically and rejects the school we have had too accept?

TheHurdle there was little movement at BHS last year. No-one knows what will happen this year but I wouldn't count on it.

And yes, if you remain on the waiting list & a place cones up the original place automatically goes to someone else. You can remove your child from the waiting list.
