depends also on how they decide the "cut off" N Yorks is a percentage of the kids in the catchment, maybe Plymouth do similar.
The cut off will also vary if - as in N Yorks - nearly all the kids in catchment do the test o if it is an area where only kids can opt to do the test - that means that the baseline will change.
I suppose ultimately you to look at the A levels etc to asses whether the reputation (and effort consumed
) of being hard to get into is justified.
Tiffin got 1066 (girls) and 943 (boys)
PHS got 789
DHS got 1004 and 934
The Skipton schools got 1125 (boys) and 1058 (girls)
Not musch difference apart from a lower score at PHS so perhaps the different scores on entry don't make such a difference?
