I want to apply to a grammar 6th form and I am quite anxious about the application process. I wanted to know if having excellent predicted grades is enough to get in. What do they look for when looking at so many applicants, is it just the grades that appeal to them or is extra curriculars and a good reference just as important?

Good grades count for a lot but you'll also probably be interviewed as well. Definitely have some extracurriculars but it doesn't need to be a crazy amount - maybe just one or two to show how you can get involved in the school (e.g. clubs or societies you'd be interested in or something). I'd reckon it would vary from school to school but show them you have a life outside of academics.
I would assume the teacher reference is also important.
