I was just wondering what counts as a 'selective state school'? Is that only grammar schools, or would it cover, for instance, welsh schools that aren't selective on grades, but will only take pupils who speak Welsh?

I wouldn't have thought so....in my opinion...a selective state school is a non-independantly funded school that 'selects' their students by means of a test/tests....eg...verbal and non-verbal reasoning.

I think for the purpose of league tables, etc, it means academically selective.
