'To help them provide a truly comprehensive education' the plan is to increase the number of 11+ grammar places from 30 to 90 whilst increasing the overall intake from 256 to 280.
The admission booklet for 2012 states 30 grammar plus 230 other, total 260.
With an extra c20 places, but now 90 not 30 classified as grammar, this willhave an averse effect on the non-selectives in Rugby, creaming off a further 60 of the brightest and forcing potentially 40 of those who would have expected to get in, via catchment elsewhere?
Effective from 2013 see http://www.ashlawn.org.uk/Documents/PublicDocuments/ConsultationLetter121211.pdf
If the girls grammar is also proposing to increase its intake by 26, the effect of the non-selectives will be compounded.
