So sorry Snowdrops.
Did your DD pass the 11+/get in on appeal? If so, they must offer you a grammar place and surely none of them are 'failing'?! I only ask because RGS was mentioned in a reply to you.
Apologies, if I have got the wrong end of the stick.
North Yorks is odd as it is a huge county with only 2 relatively small areas (centred on Skipton and Ripon) where there are grammar schools. All the rest of the patch is non selective. Both areas get a lot of interest from outside their catchments, Skipton from West Yorks / East Lancs etc and Ripon from surrounding parts of N Yorks partic Harrogate where there are some excellnet schools (non selective but with very tight catchments / faith requirements) and some ahem not such good schools. Snowdrops is desperately trying to avoid the allocated school........
