If you look on page 5 of this year's Secondary School Admissions guide you will find a (rather imprecise) map.

Hi, Sorry didn't notice dates. This is not a new situation though, it was the same 3 years ago. I'll have a go at posting a link but it is a lengthy one so no guarantees!

O.K. just checked link and it doesn't take you direct to the document but there is a link on the linked page which will get you there. You want the link titled "Admission to Secondary School in Kent 2011" . Not the one about 2011 transfers.

Yes there's a little map in the admissions booklet each year which shows this. But how would someone living close to any of the lines drawn on the map know which side of the line they actually live on?

The booklet is not quite accurate and hightlights the point made by mystery.

I live in Greenhithe in the district of "Greenhithe & Swanscombe". But Greenhithe is covered by the Dartford and Wilmington GS and plenty of children locally go to these GS without a problem. Swanscombe has a secondary school but it does not have a grammar or higher ability scheme that i was ever told about last year. In fact they pushed their "Golden curriculum" for, and i quote "children with a reading age of 6". :roll:

Then my boys go/went to primary in Longfield and this area is covered by the Gravesend GS (certainly the boys not 100% certain on the girls) in fact the HTat the boys GS told a friend just make sure you pay your council tax to Gravesend because Gravesend is their catchment area. Every boy i know from the Longfield area that wanted a grammar place got it (this year and last year in the end).

All very confusing it just highlights the need to read, re-read and read again the admissions criteria for each school :?
