I'm not sure if everybody has seen this document for admissions for 2019/20.

http://www.wirral.gov.uk/sites/default/ ... 9-2020.pdf

My daughter passed her 11+ and put Wirral as her first choice, at first we though it may be a 50/50 chance but according to last year every girl who put it as first choice was offered a place and that was with 166 with first choice for last year and for 2019 there are 180 places available.

I know you don't want to tempt fate but at only 3 miles away as well I don't really see a problem as I have found out in previous it went to any girl in a 9 mile radius and I think even 20 miles after that.

BTW from last year all girls who reached the standard for West Kirby & Upton were also offered a place and Calday went to 16.3 miles from the school.

Hope this helps

Thanks for this :) The HT of Wirral also said similar at the open evening, she said every girl in the last few years who put Wirral as 1st choice got a place, she also said that the birth rate for girls was low again so she expects once again everyone who chooses Wirral should get in. We are 5 miles shortest distance so I hope thats ok too :)

Does anyone know what the birth rate is for boys this year? We’re 9 miles from Wirral and 18 from Calday according to google maps but it must show differently because my friends son got in from 3 miles miles further away from me this year and it says 16 miles was the furthest distance

Sometimes they do straight line distance, you can measure it on google maps and should be much shorter than by road.
