It appears to have an entrance test and faith requirements so appears to be a catholic grammar school....

The gist of seems to be that you have to pass the test (but it might be a pretty low standard to pass) and then if they are oversubscribed the decision is made on a faith basis and inner area / outer basis area (rather than distance to home address or score).

What are the results like? It looks to me as though it would be like a Catholic comprehensive with the bottom sets missing.
