I do know however, that unless you put colyton grammar as your first choice, you will not get in, even if you pass the exam. Both schools have websites and colyton's explain their entrance procedures in great depth! I'm fairly sure the same applies for torquay, as obviously there's alot of kids going for not alot of places, therefore if it's not your first choice then you go down the list.
Sorry to waffle on, think it makes sense?!
No schools are allowed to insist on first preference on the LEA list from Sept 2008 entry. The new admissions code outlaws this, and the schools that have been doing that up to now have all had to revise their admissions criteria to reflect this.
