Any applicant achieving an eligible score on each test (Verbal Reasoning, Mathematics and English) is automatically considered for entry. There may be more children with eligible scores than places available.
Applicants achieving eligible scores will be ranked on the basis of performance in the entrance tests and places allocated by Devon Local Authority (LA). Those who have a statement of special needs naming the school and with an eligible score will be allocated a place.
