Fair enough

I think there is a solution, you go to the nearest school from your home

Only reason that there may be 12 places for each child is because all parents want their kids to go to the best school, nothing wrong with that apart from when it takes away a place from a child that lives nearby

My son lives lesss that 5 mins walk from out local secondary school yet failed to get in as it is over-subscribed, now he has to travel on a bus/tube 3 miles to get to school, yet I see hundreds of kids getting of the tube/bus and walking right past my front door and going to the school that is 5 mins walk away from us, if this is not absurd, then Im a monkeys

Children clogging up the buses & tubes to get to school when they could walk if this admissions policy was changed back
