Anxious mum, this is the admission criteria for Sutton Boys Grammar copied from their website.

If you are in the top 30 , wherever you live, be it France, you will be offered a place.:
How does the School determine which boys receive offers?
All boys deemed to be of selective ability on the basis of the Selection Test will be eligible for places at the School. In the event of the number of eligible applications exceeding the number of places available in the year, the following criteria will apply, in the order set out below, to decide which boys to admit:-
1. Children who are looked after by a local authority. Supporting evidence of the status will be required.
2. 30 places to the highest ranking boys in the Selection Test,
3. Rank order of the scores in the Selection Test for those boys who live within a circle of radius 10km, centred on the main entrance to Sutton Civic Offices
4. Rank order of the scores in the Selection Test for other eligible boys.
In the event of two or more boys scoring the same marks and where the admission of all would exceed the number of places available, places will be allocated by proximity of the boy’s home (measured in a straight line) to the main entrance of Sutton Civic Offices.
The second round refers to admissions from the waiting list if you don't meet the admisssion criteria.
Wilsons, I believe has no catchment area.
I hope this helps
