In fact I don't understand why people put second preference down as a Grammar. As most first Choices are accepted anyway.
It was the only way we would get a place offered in our prefered all ability school.
Having passed the eleven plus, my child has not been offered a place at grammar school as apparently it is over subscribed.
In previous years, second prefs have also been offered a place at the grammar school so I guess we have been unlucky.
By the way, this is not West Kirby grammar, my child is a boy and I was just trying to find out if it was the same for the girls this year.
