My understanding is that you need 265

You are wrong - the pass mark alone is 320.

Weald allocates on distance - there are no guarantees until March unfortunately. Best to research how far out the offers went last year.

Based on previous years you would definitely have got a place but for 2017 entry I think you would have got in from the waiting list as they were so oversubscribed. Offers eventually went out as far as Green Street Green this year and anyone living further out than that had to go to appeal. I am sure you will be fine although it obviously depends on how many apply.

Oversubscription criteria for Wilmington Girls:

1. Children in Local Authority Care – a child under the age of 18 years for whom the local authority
provides accommodation by agreement with their parents/carers (Section 22 of the Children Act 1989) or
who ceased to be so because they were adopted or who is the subject of a care order under Part IV of the
Act.
2. Siblings in the school - a sister attending WGSG when the child starts. In this context a sister
means a child who lives in the same house, including natural sisters, adopted siblings, stepsisters or foster
sisters. If siblings from multiple births (twins, triplets, etc) apply for a school and the school would reach
it’s PAN after admitting one or more, but before admitting all of those siblings, governors will offer a place
to each of the siblings, even if doing so takes the school above its PAN.
3. Siblings in Wilmington Grammar School for Boys (WGSB) - a brother attending the school when
the child starts. In this context brother means a child who lives in the same house, including natural
brothers or adopted siblings, stepbrothers or foster brothers. If siblings from multiple births (twins, triplets,
etc) apply for a school and the school would reach it’s PAN after admitting one or more, but before
admitting all of those siblings, governors will offer a place to each of the siblings, even if doing so takes
the school above its PAN.
4. Pupil Premium - Students in receipt of Pupil Premium living within 3 miles proximity of the school:
a child is eligible for Pupil Premium where she has been registered for free school meals (FSM) at any
point in the last 6 years. This does not include children who have only been eligible to receive Universal
Infant Free School Meals. Pupil Premium is also afforded to Children in Local Authority Care or Previously
in Local Authority Care, however these children will be prioritised in the relevant criteria above.
5. 1.5 mile proximity –within this criterion children will be ranked according to the distance from their
home to the Wilmington Grammar School for Girls, with those living closest being ranked highest. The
distance is measured between the child’s permanent address and the school in a straight line using the
National Land and Property Gazetteer (NLPG) address point data. Distances are measured from a point
within the child’s home to a similarly defined point within the school as specified by National Land and
Property Gazetteer (NLPG).
6. Governor Places awarded to girls who have shown exceptional performance in the Mathematics
paper of the Kent test - Up to 10% of the PAN (15 places) will be awarded to those children who through
the tests have shown an exceptional performance which places them in the top 15 selective places in
Mathematics. In case of tied scores distance will be used. If in the unlikely event that more than one
applicant has the same distance from home to school, as measured by the Local Authority, then an
independently adjudicated random selection will be applied.
7. Eligible girls who live in the named parishes below (see map attached) –
Dartford Stone Swanscome & Greenhithe
Wilmington Darenth Bean
Hextable Sutton at Hone & Hawley Wrotham
Southfleet Swanley Horton Kirby & South Darenth
Longfield & New Barn Crockenhill Farningham
Fawkham Hartley Eynsford
Ash Cum Ridley Shoreham West Kingsdown
Stanstead Otford Kemsing
Halsted Dunton Green Sevenoaks
Children within this priority area will be ranked according to the distance from their home to the
Wilmington Grammar School for Girls with those living closest being ranked highest. The distance is
measured between the child’s permanent address and the school in a straight 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. The same address point on the
school site is used for everybody. If in the unlikely event that more than one applicant has the same
distance from home to school, as measured by the Local Authority, then an independently adjudicated
random selection will be applied.
8. All other girls – within this criterion children will be ranked according to the distance from their
home to the Wilmington Grammar School for Girls, with those living closest being ranked highest. The
distance is measured between the child’s permanent address and the school 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. The same
address point on the school site is used for everybody. If in the unlikely event that more than one
applicant has the same distance from home to school, as measured by the Local Authority, then an
independently adjudicated random selection will be applied.
The school uses measurements provided by the Local Authority and further information on how distances
are calculated including what is regarded as permanent residence and how flats will be treated is available
in the Admissions Booklet provided by the Local Authority.
