Oversubscription Policy 2016
Where the number of eligible applicants who qualify for admission to Sale Grammar School in Years 7 to 11 exceed the number of available places in the relevant year group, places will be allocated in the following priority order. Random allocation will be used to determine the final place where the distance between two applicants' homes and the School is the same and the applicants cannot otherwise be separated.
1. A ‘looked after child' or a child who was previously looked after but immediately after being looked after became subject to an adoption, residence, or special guardianship order as defined in the Admissions Code 2012.
2. Applicants residing in the priority admission area as defined by post codes M33, WA14, WA15, plus Trafford Authority residents within the M23 post code. Where the number of applicants qualifying for admission under this criterion exceeds the number of places available, priority will be given to those applicants residing closer to the school as measured by a straight line distance from the front door of the applicant's place of residence to the main door of the school. This will be calculated using property co-ordinates provided through a combination of the Trafford Local Land and Property Gazetteer (BS7666), other LAs and Royal Mail Postal Address Information.
3. Applicants from outside the priority admission area will be placed in rank order as determined by their scores in the selection tests. Where several applicants qualify for the final available place using ranked scores, priority will be given to the applicant residing closest to the school as measured by a straight line distance from the front door of the applicant's place of residence to the main door of the school.

Sale Grammar School is usually oversubscribed in terms of those wishing to join the school and places available. However, there can be occasions during the year when a few places become available due to family mobility.
Applicants for in year admissions may join the waiting list if a place is not available within the year group, providing they have qualified through the Sale Grammar School Entrance Test. Should a place become available, the oversubscription criteria will be applied to those on the waiting list in order to allocate the place.
