There is a significant intake from state schools into RGS at 11+ and that may become more so with the new head who has come from a state grammar. However if your dc hasn't yet started school you may want to be openminded about secondary just yet. St Bedes is currently working towards Academy status which may also change their admissions criteria longer term. tbh I think you may need to get your skates on to secure a space in Reception for 2014 in any of those schools. They all have nurseries attached which feed through and often only a few spaces for extra intake into Reception(dd was one of only 4 new children out of 45). There is also Redehall in Smallfield if very small and I'd be worried about its long term future although it has somehow survived so far.
