There are only 10 places. As far as I understand they are not usually over subscribed and have in fact been under subscribed for the past few years.
I spoke to the admissions tutor last week, and she provided me with the boarding over subscription criteria.
There were a number of criteria, but the only ones applicable for this year Re the sibling rule, and thereafter it will be by score.
I understand that there is at least 1 sibling, so that leaves 9 places available. I do not know how many boys applied for boarding, or indeed, how many of those achieved the qualifying score. I do know that there were more than 10 boarding applications, but that is usually the case.
I believe that they will be writing to boRding applicants this week, but do not know what the content of that letter will be. I am hoping that we will receive some indication of the likelihood of obtaining a boarding place, but doubt that we will get a ranking.
Hope this helps
