Wirral- Liverpool- Choosing your new Grammar School

Parents should check with each school for their admissions criteria because these do change frequently. In some cases Grammar Schools will have geographic restrictions on who can apply and in others they are open entry. Often Parents will want to apply to more than one school if they are eligible to ensure they give their child the best chance of a place.

Do visit any school you are thinking of with your child. Try and visit more than one if it is relevant for you to get a feel of how they differ. We would also advise you to visit the local comprehensive school as well because it is useful to get a feeling for any differences between the two systems. Most schools have open days so ask the school for the dates (most are in the late spring or early summer).
