Hi everyone, I wonder if anyone can help

We live just outside Wycombe and would like our daughter to attend Beaconsfield High School - does anyone know whether they have a catchment area, and where it is if so? Even though it's not that near us it would be very convenient as it's on my husband's way to work

Hi! We're also hoping to send our daughter there!

We live in Beaconsfield so haven't had to worry about the catchment area, but did see a map here: https://www.beaconsfieldhigh.bucks.sch.uk/Admissions/

Hope this helps!

Thank you so much, that's great! Looks like we're just inside the area, phew!

Do you know if it matters at all where in the area you live? Are those living closer to the school given priority for places?

Among those who pass the 11+ places are given in order of how close you are to the school - so probably worth not putting all your eggs in one basket!!

Still, you will still have priority over anyone who lives outside the catchment area

Thank you! Fingers crossed then... We are also considering other schools don't worry!

Hi - I have one more question about this! As we live in Buckinghamshire we're automatically entered for the 11+, but do we have to indicate somewhere that we're interested in Beaconsfield specifically?

No, that won't be necessary! As long as you put the school you want on your CAF form in October{:1_116:}

The Common Application Form! It's the form you submit to your local authority in October with all your school choices on

Oh of course! I see, thank you! We'll know the results of the 11+ before the CAF deadline, right?
