What I have been told is that the cohort as a whole is smaller for year 7 kids starting in 2013.....I have been told that over and over again by various head teachers over the last year or so. This means that statistically there should have been less take it this year than the last few years....resulting presumably in less kids passing?
Wirral LEA have said that approx 1600 children took the 11+ this time.....apparently only 30% of kids actually pass.
So lets say that 480 kids have passed. Divide that into boys and girls (will have to be equally down the middle coz I don't know exact figures) so 240 girls and 240 boys.
Wirral Grammar for boys has 155 places........Calday Grammar has 200.
On those hypothetical figures you should get in to Calday no problem
but then again I could have totally incorrect information but thats what I have been told!
