  • Your location to the school.
  • You or your child has a disability. You may possibly need to send your offspring to a specialised school to cater for your child.
  • Faith Schools
  • Your offspring went to an associated nursery/primary/secondary school.
  • Entrance exam or selection test (grammar schools and some others select a fraction of their pupils on scholarly ability)
  • Assessment or interview (if the establishment awards a precise number of places on the basis of aptitude for selected subjects)
