Thanks Sun&Sky! Yes, it's the same for 2016 entry. As you say, it depends on how many have the same score. If anyone can let me know I'd be very grateful! We are looking at all the grammars. Thanks
Does it matter where we live?
For practical reasons your son shouldn’t have a journey of more than an hour in order that he can fully participate in the wider life of the school. Where there is a tie in the scores from the entrance examinations, places are offered to boys who live in the London Borough of Sutton before those who live outside the Borough.
This is a selective boys’ school with approximately 1060 pupils. Boys in Year 6 of primary school in September 2014 and deemed to be of selective ability as determined by their performance in the entrance tests will be eligible for a place at the school. Where the number of eligible candidates for admission exceeds 180, places will be allocated according to their position in the rank order of the entrance examinations. Where candidates have the same rank order and where the admission of all would exceed the number of places available, places will be allocated in the following order:
firstly to candidates whose home address* is within the London Borough of Sutton in the order of the distance of their home address measured in a straight line from the main front door of Wilson’s School;
secondly to those candidates who live elsewhere in the order of the distance of their home address measured in a straight line from the main front door of Wilson's School.
this is a fairly common feature of oversubscription policies at selective schools. They will offer places on the ranked order of scores and then if there is a tie for the last place score, the places will be offered to Sutton boys before OOC boys.
