Admission & applications
numbers for last 3 years.
Parents are always interested in how many people apply for each grammar school and this information, for the last 3 years, can be found on this page.
The number of applications can fluctuate each year for a number of reasons including how many parents applied the previous year. Sometimes schools get a lot of applications one year and parents believe that with so many applications the previous year that it may not be worth applying and so the numbers can drop.
Application and admission numbers should be seen in combination with the overall school entrance criteria. You should familiarise yourself with all details.
