Sorry you’ve had no reply. All I can suggest is that you contact the school and ask them for more information.

Places are given to kids in area 1 and then area 2 primaries both in rank order, after that it is OOC children in rank order. The question you need to ask is how many children from outside the area 1 and 2 primaries have got a place in the past few years

ETA - from this post it looks like parents are given an overall rank ? viewtopic.php?t=56324&p=694147 from this it should indicate whether an OOC child has a chance of getting a place

If you are outside tier 1 and 2 then distance makes absolutely no difference. There were kids from over 30 miles away at the induction day. It all then depends on the score, which in turn determines your place on the waiting list.

Does anyone know the typical score out of area kids needed to get to get in, or scores for top 10 waiting list?

yes that is correct, as the policy states it is in rank order - however they are then open to problem with children travelling long distances, much depends on public transport systems and 25 miles on one train leg is fine but when it means changes, or the direct bus takes over an hour it can get grim especially in the winter

Last year the pass mark was 99.5.
Tier 1 got a place.
Tier 2 got places
Out of area were given places in rank order. Not sure what the out of area pass mark was, but know lots of kids in the low hundreds out of area who didn't get places. The proportion of out of area kids varies from year to year, sometimes as much as half the places. I know an out of area child whose family has moved up from Derby because they secured a place! The highest mark I'm aware of was 128.6. Not sure what the max mark is.

Although the test is the same one as some of the Trafford grammars, the marking scheme and scores differ from school to school so the same child may be given a score of 120 for brgs, and 150 for a Trafford school for the exact same paper.
