Important points to remember

Listing only one preference does not increase your chance of getting in to that school.

Applying for more than one school does not weaken your chances of getting a place at your preferred school.

Decisions about who to offer places to are made using the admissions criteria only, which other schools you have applied for is unimportant.

All applications to a school are considered at the same time. Priority is not given to those who put the school first.

The order in which you list the schools is only used if you could be offered a place at more than one school. In this case, you would be offered whichever of those schools was highest on your application.

You should list the schools in the order that you would most prefer them, not the order you think you might get them.

You need to make an application even if you have an elder child attending your preferred school. 

There are no results that match your criteria.
