Are you looking at secondary schools for future admission starting at year 7 (age 11), or to join an existing year group?
If the latter, you could move next door to your preferred school and still not get a place, as you will be dependent on someone leaving the school to get a place if that school is at its maximum capacity.
Last year I helped a friend try to find a school place for a year 8 girl and none of the Southwark schools could help. She ended up at Haberdashers - a much sought-after Lewisham school that just happened to have an in year vacancy.
If you are looking at Year 10, I would reckon Kingsdale would be a good bet as quite a large number of students leave to join the Brit School, which only starts at age 14.
