Hi All..I would appreciate if you could clarify my below questions.
My DS scored 219 as follows:
764 out of 2694 all children
415 out of 1367 all boys
187 out of 507 southern boys
353 out of 1037 southern children
My question is how does the ranking works? At the moment his 187 ranking is shared by 9 kids in southern circle.
1) what is the chance of my DSS securing a place in Alcester grammar school?
2) Will boys and girls share the total number of allocation equally in AGS ( 75 + 75)?
3) Am i allowed to put LSS as second option? if yes what would be the probability of getting place in LSS ( I live in southern circle).
We do live in southern priority circle.
This may be a very naive view but if you consider that there are 351 grammar school places in the Southern priority circle (150 AGS, 120 SGGS, 81 KES) then as your DS ranked 353 he is very likely to get into AGS unless there is a move against the traditional trend and lots of the very high scoring boys and girls choose AGS over KES and SGSS.
My DS started at AGS in September and tells me there are more boys than girls - the evidence is in the register. BTW DS is very happy and has settled well - I can't believe he has only been there for 6 weeks.
