  • Your location to the school.
  • You or your child has a disability. You may possibly want to send your child to a specialised school to look after your offspring.
  • Faith Schools
  • Your child went to an associated nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entry exam or selection test (grammar schools and some others go for a fraction of their pupils on scholarly ability)
  • Assessment or audition (if the establishment awards a certain number of places on the basis of aptitude for certain subjects)
