    I'm a bit confused where there are two options for state schools. s has already been said earlier in the thread, all state schools will have a maximum. Whether this is religiously stuck to or not, it will have a maximum set. Often this maximum will be set around the level they expect to go there (like my old school, it was around 270 people in each year, normally with about 290-300 applications stating the school as first choice). This was all the school could feasibly accommodate in any one year without new building work. All schools will have to have some limit like this.

    Can't the first two potion be merged?

    Sebbie, which school are you at in Kent? I went to Hayesbrook (comprehensive) and I'm now studying at the University of Nottingham.

    I went to a dodgy inner city school but one that taught you how to spell grammar. My sister went to a state grammar school which kind of shows a flow in this poll.

    It all depends on whether you mean 'Grammar' school in the name of the school, or Grammar school in the type of the school

    My old school had 'Grammar', in its name, but in reality, it ceased being a Grammar school 50 years ago.
