Preferencing process

I have been allocated to the Wales Foundation School, what happens next?

Applicants allocated to the Wales Foundation School (as part of the primary list) will receive an email outlining the preferencing process and providing the spread of scores for all candidates allocated in the recruitment round. 

This information is also linked below, and will be updated in line with each new Preferencing period.
