Move now or later?

Hi all,
We live in Bromley. DD will be taking the 11 plus tests (Kent, Bexley and Newstead wood) in 2017.

We moved to Bromley when DD was small. We bought a house close to a fantastic state school. DH and I worked in London, so Bromley was perfect for the commute etc. Now our circumstances have changed. I work locally (DH still commutes to London). Also, our house has become too small for us. So we are planning to move into a bigger property.We were thinking of moving to Tonbridge. Commute wise - its still ok for DH. We get more house for our money and we will be within 3-4 miles of 3 grammar schools.

Another thing I have to mention here - we are very particular about DD not having to commute a lot for school. We were anyway planning to move if she gets a grammar place somewhere. Are we better off making the move now - giving us the advantage of being within catchment for Kent Schools?

We have a brilliant local secondary here in Bromley. What if we move to Tonbridge and DD ends up getting a place in Surrey???? What id we doesn't get a grammar place at all? We will end up in Tonbridge and not have a place in our lovely bromley comprehensive. Nightmare !!

We are totally confused and not sure what we should do. Any relevant advice is gratefully received. Thank you!
