Hi, my DD has just been offered a place from the waiting list for OOC. We missed the induction and my DD doesn't know any other girl who is starting or already in DGGS.

Are there any girls commuting from Crystal palace/Beckenham area? The coach comes to Beckenham junction.

Any advice about school experience, workload and commuting is very appreciable.

Hi Bridge123,
We have been also offered the place on 12/07 and missed the induction.
Where are you based? PM me.
We also don’t know what house she is going to be in and what colour PE tops to be bought.

We attended the induction day. We were given a pack that gave details of uniform etc. DD was told her form and house during the induction day. She also received lots of homework.

Have you all received the induction pack?

I am happy to answer any specific questions. We are based in Bexley.

Dear ronkevso,

How was your and your DD's experience of the induction day? we haven't received any information pack or homework. We also don't know her house or form.
Do we have to buy a specific coloured PE uniform or thew whole uniform is standard that is available from the retailers?

Please share your experience.

Congratulations to your daughter for getting space in DArtford Grammar. If you don’t mind, can you please share your DDs score. My daughter gave the exam this year and really liked the school. She got 387 in Kent test but I am worried that the score might not be enough.. Thanks

Even if the score was shared, past scores from a different cohort, from the waiting list, give you no more realistic information than you have currently. The point about offers from the wait list is that they rely on others turning a place down. If this is your favourite school, list it first on your CAF, with other schools in your true preference order and make sure you have one definite school on there (like your local catchment school) and then just try and forget about it till March.
