We got our 3rd choice Beths (5.3 miles straight line distance). We had St Olave's and Dartford Grammar as 1st and 2nd choice.

Hi folks, congrats to those who have secured the places they were after!

I wanted to share some distance information which might help others. We live in Blackheath and have not been successful with either Chis & Sid or Townley in the initial offer. We're 4.7 miles from C&S and we're 5.64 miles from Townley. We have requested to go onto the waiting list for both schools. Townley admissions lady got back to me to say that their initial offers went out 5.03 miles.

Does anyone know the distance of 1st round offers for C&S?

Also, daughter now more keen on Townley (2nd on form) over C&S (1st on form) so what happens if she gets a waiting list offer from Townley and accepts it but then get and offer from C&S?

If you get offered Townley and accept it, then you can just refuse Chis and Sids if it gets offered. Did they give you a waiting list place number? Last year it eventually went out to over 12 miles so you have a good chance of getting it at some point before September.

If you get Townley and prefer that, you can just take your DD's name off the waiting list for Chis & Sid, rather than wait to be offered and turn down a place you no longer want.

Thanks folks.

No waiting list no. from Townley just yet as they are still collating acceptances, rejections and requests to be put on the lists. Think it will be a couple of weeks until lists are formalised. I'm pretty confident of getting something sorted but fingers crossed.

Wow Chis n Sid didn’t come out as far this year then. I think last year it was 9 miles, but maybe they had an extra class? It came out to Petts Wood which is around 3.5 miles as lots from my DD’s school got it.

We too preferred Townley to Chis n Sid. There were a few reasons why, but these things are very subjective. Mainly my DD was quite adamant on it and her preference for Townley.

The distances published in the Bexley School list for 2019/2020 were taken as of August I believe so we're not comparing like with like at the moment.

We had C&S first choice main because my daughter disliked the sight of chewing gum on the back of a few of the chairs in the Townley Assembly hall! But they both seemed excellent so wasn't really much in the way of preference. She now prefers Townley as some of her school mates will be going there now.
