Convert Heathland school in Hounslow to a grammar school

This petition had 344 supporters

All the grammar schools in surrounding area have introduced designated area to reduce number of seats available to the students outside the school local area.

For Example  Langley grammar school gives first preference to Local Admission Area with post code SL3 7, SL3 8 and SL3 0. Tiffin girls school allocates 60 seats to students from Inner Area. Same applies to other grammar schools in surrounding area. This reduces opportunity available to resident in Hounslow area. 

Also if somehow students is lucky enough to get admission then has to travel too far which hinders the focus on study for the students and burden of Travel cost to parents. For example Langley grammar school is approx 10 miles from Hounslow  and Tiffin Girls School is approx. 7 miles from Hounslow.

Heathland school is one of the best school in Hounslow. This school works purely on distance from the school. The distance is reduced year on year. This petition is for London Borough of Hounslow to convert Heathland School to grammar school and allow students to admit based on ability in entrance test rather then distance criteria to allow deserved students to have the best opportunity.
