Hi
I'm just wondering if siblings play any part in grammar school allocation? My daughter has come 229 :D and we put down both schools so I know she is guaranteed a place but her sister is in Y9 at NHGS, which is our first choice. I'm just curious as to whether this gives her priority or not?

Hi reegybeegy,

The over-subscription criteria is only used if they cannot offer all shared score/rank a place at the school. In that case they would differentiate the candidates by first accepting children in care, next distance and finally siblings.

interesting - in skipton it's the other way round - siblings before distance.

It would be so much easier if all the schools used the same test and selected pupils in the same way.
