UK Student School Records and Applying to Public School

A few questions about UK schooling. I’m writing a Harry Potter crossover. Because of the crossover universe involved the story starts September 2, 2002. Harry‘s 10 at this time. If my research is right he would have just started 6th year of Primary School at a fictional local private school (government run) in Little Whinging, Surrey. I’m placing the town in the Borough of Spelthorne.

He kept his grades equal or below what his cousin Dudley received. Dudley is not too bright. So he’s probably only just passing (in the US he would be getting C‘s). Harry also has no friends. Probably doesn’t answer questions in class.

What would be on his school records?

Also he and his new guardian, Wesley will be moving to London. Wesley’s well educated so Harry‘s education would be important to him. I have planned for Wesley to try to get enough money together for Harry to go to a public secondary school starting 7th year. It looks like he would be applying around November/December. Payment is per term (3 total). A few of the London schools I looked at online had tuition being around 5,000 (that’s current prices). So for a year’s schooling he would need to save 15,000.

Does that information seem accurate?

Also, how difficult would it be to get Harry into a Public school in London for the rest of his 6th year? By this time, it would probably be the third week of September of his 6th year. What kind of procedure would be involved? How much money would Wesley have to have? Would it be worth the effort from an educational standpoint? After all, it’s only one year.
