    Just look on each of the schools websites and it will say the catchement area. Almost all schools have a catachement area, so you should stick to your side of London.

    Grammar schools don't have catchment - you get in if you pass the exam - I only know three of these but all Grammar schools are about the same (check the league tables to see where they place). I'm an old grammar school girl and loved it.

    Best of luck

    Not true everywhere. In my old school district (I left last year) 1/3 of the places went to the best people in catchment area, then the remaining 2/3 were given out regardless of where you lived - so if you had a worse score in the 11+, you'd be more likely to get in if you lived in the catchment area.

    This is correct. Idk about grammar schools in the south east; but up here in Yorkshire I got into my grammar school despite being a 2 bus commute away, so we didn't have catchements.

    But afaik some grammars do, so I'd do some research, see if you can find out which ones on your list don't have catchments (if any)

    Firstly I have to apologise I didn't read the tittle of the thread - now I see that you are talking about sixth form and not secondary then what everyone is saying is correct.

    I know St Michaels / Henrietta / Latymer - I love Grammar schools for secondary but hate them for sixth form - if you are a straight A student that doesn't really need any help (in terms of stress / time management / study skills etc) and you just need someone to teach you content thats it - grammar school is perfect. College or specific sixth form colleges are better if you have other stuff also going on - or you need a little extra guidance.

    But - you sound decided - and based on that all three are very good schools and have been written in my order of preference - but you have to go and get a feel for them.

    Hope that helps
