My reading (and someone more experienced can correct me) is that we are in the lower categories for allocating spaces ie criteria five and six:
Children living outside of the priority areas who achieve the automatic qualifying score or above for this school, for this
particular year of entry.
Children who score below the automatic qualifying score, but above the minimum score for the waiting list for this
school, for this particular year of entry.
The letter that accompanied offers for 2016 places (on Warks website - https://apps.warwickshire.gov.uk/api/do ... CC-699-529
suggests for RHS 8 girls were OOC, scoring as low as 203 to get a place however it looks as though the admissions criteria for 2016 are different to 2017. In 2017 there are up to 55 places for inner circle (not a circle at all) and up to 55 places for outer circle leaving up to 10 other places for either category one or two (looked after children and those in receipt of pupil premium) and those in category five and six. In 2016 60 girls from the inner circle were offered places but it looks as though this year there are five less places, 47 from the outer circle.
I think this means that with a high score girls OOC have a fairly good chance, but no idea if that is first or second round.
So whatever happens we won't know anything before the 1st March and I thought waiting for the results felt like a long time
