Grammar school to change 11+ selection process

Wednesday 8am - King Edward VI Grammar School may change the way pupils are selected for the school after leaving primary, the headmaster, James Lascelles has revealed.

A review of the school's admissions policy has been carried out and the Governing Body will be consulting on introducing a selection by rank order only - taking the pupils who achieve the top 120 scores.

The current system works using several different factors, including whether the child has passed or failed, where they live and Lincolnshire County Council's catchment areas.

The school says taking the top 120 pupils regardless of where they live is the fairest option.

The school and Governors are now in consultation over the rank order policy and want to hear from the parents.
