Someone asked recently on another thread:
I have tried all options I can find (Internet etc) but do not see able to find out how many appeals have been made in previous years to this GS, and also how many were successful etc.
The answer we gave was:
Information about appeals for individual schools is not often published.
If it's a foundation school, you can ask them for the details. If it's a LA school, the LA should give you the figures.
If they seem reluctant, put it in writing and say your request is being made "under the Freedom of Information Act". (You must, however, be very specific about what information you want - e.g. say "the last three years" rather than "previous years".)
With regard to travel, there isn't much that is laid down. The DCFS has in the past issued general guidance about the length
of the journey - see:

but each case would need to be looked at individually with regard to its complexity and impact on the family.
