Boarding pupils in grammar schools

6.—(1) This regulation applies to a grammar school which includes in its criteria the transfer procedure test grade achieved by children and which has a boarding department on the day on which these Regulations come into operation.

(2) A school to which this regulation applies may also include in its criteria a provision that priority shall be given to children who intend to board at the school without regard to the transfer procedure test grades which they have achieved, but such a provision may be included in the criteria only so long as the number of pupils enrolled in the boarding department of the school does not exceed the relevant number.

(3) In paragraph (2), “the relevant number” in relation to pupils enrolled in the boarding department of a school, means the number so enrolled on 21st September 1990 or on 2nd October 1997, whichever is the greater.
