Anybody think Rugby High's revised arrangements for this year will have much of an impact. They're ranking waiting lists by criteria and score instead of just by score.

I don't know exactly when the school made the required changes in order to comply, but here is the reason for them, I think

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/rugby-high-school--2

The pertinent bit is where it says that waiting lists have to be maintained in accordance with the stated oversubscription criteria.

Some of the anonymous objector's objections are fair enough, but no the whole they do rather invite the comment that some people obviously have rather too much too on their hands...

So how come only Rugby High have needed to make the change? Don't all the other schools do the same thing?

It depends on what they state in their admissions policy? If they really do all have the same non-Admissions-Code-compliant policy as Rugby High School, then a challenge should be successful.

I think I read somewhere that the objector had chosen to object to Rugby High's Admission arrangements even though they do no have any daughters,only sons! which just proves that some people really do have too much time on their hands.

I had a feeling they all did the same. That's why I was surprised only the girls school had changed.
