How long do I have to be living in the area for?

The address where you are permanently living when you apply for the exam in June will be used to calculate distance from school. You may be required to provide proof of residency. If you have lived in your home for less than two years, you may be required to provide proof of disposal of your previous property.

What if I move nearer to school after I have registered for the entrance exam?

You should notify the Admissions Officer of your new address, by email at admissions@aggs.bright-futures.co.uk  Should your child pass the entrance exam, your home address at the time of registration will be used to measure mileage.  If your child is not offered a school place in the first round of offers on 1st March 2025, she may be offered a place in any subsequent rounds of offers which will take into account your new address.
