Wirral Grammar School for Boys does not establish a formal catchment area. Nevertheless, within its oversubscription criteria, the school gives preference to students residing in closer proximity. The priority area is determined by measuring the shortest distance from the child's residence to the school, as calculated using Wirral Local Authority's computer mapping system.
