I can't see anything about siblings in the Admissions Policy - it would be a 'cross-sibling' criterion, as the two schools are separate?

You are in the 'local area', though, so are eligible for both category 1 places and 'any applicant, score order'.

https://www.dartfordgrammarschool.org.uk/docs/Admissions_Y7/Admissions_Policy_2020.pdf



OVER-SUBSCRIPTION CRITERIA

In the case of over-subscription, places are allocated in the order set out below. Within each section below,
students are ranked according to the applicant’s combined test scores in the Kent Tests. Please note that in the case of tied scores, preference is given to the applicant living nearest to the school.*
1. Children in Local Authority Care or Previously in Local Authority Care – a 'looked after child' or a child who was previously looked after but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, child arrangements, or special guardianship order. A looked after child is a child who is (a) in the care of a local authority, or (b) being provided with accommodation by a local authority in the exercise of their social services functions (see the definition in Section 22(1) of
the Children Act 1989).
2. Zone A - Up to a maximum of 90 places are reserved for boys whose primary residence (as
assessed by documents requested by the school) lies within the Dartford Electoral Wards: Brent,
Bean and Darenth, Castle, Greenhithe, Heath, Joyce Green, Joydens Wood, Littlebrook, Longfield,
New Barn & Southfleet, Newtown, Princes, Stone, Sutton-at-Hone and Hawley, Swanscombe,
Town, West Hill, Wilmington. Maps indicating the defined area are given below in Appendix A. All
applicants eligible within this category will pay council tax to Dartford Borough Council. The
school is ‘full’ within Zone A when it has taken its quota of 90 pupils or when there are no more
candidates who have passed the tests and have named the school as a preference. Any places left
unfilled are added to the number of places available in category 3 of the oversubscription criteria.
3. The remaining 90 places will be available for all applicants regardless of address. (Please
note that all students applying to Dartford Grammar School including those in Zone A will be
ranked in this category for the purposes of allocation.)In the case of tied scores, we use data provided by Kent County Council. They use the distance between
the child’s permanent home address and the school, measured in a straight line using the National Land and
Property Gazetteer (NLPG) address point data. Distances are measured from a point defined as within the
child’s home to a point defined as within the school as specified by NLPG. When we apply the distance
criterion for the school, these straight line measurements are used to determine how close each applicant’s
address is to the school. The same address point on the school site is used for everybody. In a tie-breaker
situation, where the nearness of the applicant’s home is the deciding factor, if more than one applicant has
the same distance from home to school then random selection will be applied.
Also note that a pupil’s primary residence is considered to be a residential property that is the child’s only
or main residence and not an address at which the child might sometimes stay or sleep due to the parent’s
or guardian’s own domestic or special arrangements. The address must be the pupil’s home address on the
day the parent or guardian completed the application form, which is EITHER owned by the child’s parent,
parents or guardian OR leased to or rented by the child’s parent, parents or guardian under a lease or
written rental agreement. (If you live separately from your partner but share responsibility for your child,
and the child lives at two different addresses during the week, we will regard the home address as the one
at which the child sleeps for the majority of weekdays.) You may be asked for evidence of the
arrangements.

Hi birenpat, unlike Wilmington Grammar, there is not cross sibling policy between DGS and DGGS.

These are the past in area scores needed as at 1st March. They may have gone down later on.

2015 320
2016 351
2017 352
2018 358
2019 369

Best of luck!
