Maidenhead? Good schools there. What you don't want is Burnham Upper if you don't get Burnham Grammar.

Do u mean burnham upper academy-it’s going to close in September probably as there is not much students intake and school report is not very good.

I'm not surprised, I've heard bad things about it

Great Marlow school is very good. I would recommend moving to near Marlow into that catchment. If he passes his 11 plus he would be able to go to Borlase grammar school or John Hampden. But the comprehensive Great Marlow school is also excellent and some people prefer it to grammar schools.

This year you have had to have been within 1.76 miles of SWBGS to get a place (& within 4.099 miles of Great Marlow).

I think it's October 31st but that may have changed. Check the schools' websites or Bucks CC website.
