It is such a lottery! And it always depends on how many siblings apply, as they get priority over distance.
I can tell you that Elm Wood are only suggesting you look at the school for next years intake if you live before the Rosendale pub, as they say that it is rare for people to get in if they live beyond that point. But, as ever, it changes from year to year. One year they had 36 siblings apply, which leaves little room for anyone else. Elm Wood is the smallest school out of all the others with only two class intake.
I would say you have a good chance of getting into Julians, as I know people who have got in there where you live.
Hope that helps. Good luck!
