Need some help here please. In the CAF, do we list down only the grammer schools or we can also include public schools? I thought we can. But just spoke to the council. They say only list grammer schools. Separate process to be followed of other public school admissions. Really confused here..

do you mean public or private?

You should list all state schools (whether grammar or not) in your true order of preference.

Fee paying/independent/sometimes known as public schools have their own separate application processes and you deal direct with them not via the CAF.

'public' schools is a term that tends to be used for the very poshest fee paying schools like Eton and Harrow. I am sure that it has a specific meaning (as opposed to private/independent) but no idea what it is.
