Gosh. This is a much more positive thread than the other one for Birmingham Grammar schools!


I agree!

I’ve just had a quick look at last year’s waiting list thread- loads of places offered after 1st March.
I think I’ll stay on this one :D


Difficult to predict how many places this year with the new system but I used to reckon that most of those taking a place at KE/KEHS would have had a GS place offered so that was always a good amount of movement - some of them may have been OOC for the new system so that could have affected the numbers - but there always will be movement. There is also the knock on effect as well - someone gets offered a Cat 5, takes it and perhaps gives up the offer at the catchment GS freeing up another space.

You’re right this one is more positive than the other one. It was making me question my caf choices but I have put in preference order come what may.

Have to rely on the allocation process now.


Preference order is the only way to do it

I remember a similar calculation in Warwickshire, (back in the days of Okanagan - remember them Hermanmunster?) They always said in the top 230 ranked scorers, around one third would go elsewhere (Birmingham grammars, private, Worcestershire) and that rough calculation has always been right (up until the point they stopped giving the boy/girl split and included Birmingham who shared, in the rankings).

As HM says, there will be movement - how much off the waiting list after NAD is the question (although I seem to recall the waiting lists were fairly slow this year...)

Has that page been updated since yesterday?

It looks like Handsworth Girls and Camp Hill Boys have now confirmed that their intake will increase in 2020.

Yes, the wording of the page has been amended so the extra intake looks to be definite.

That's fantastic news. An extra 62 places across the consortium and extra places a QMGS can only mean good things. Let's hope those parents who wanted those schools have actually listed it high enough on their CAF.

Have QMGS increased their intake for 2020 as stated above? What is the number now?

Qmgs have 180 places this year, last year it was 150. Most of these will be for pupil premium children.
