Can anyone tell me where I can find data on the percentage of pupils attending grammar schools by LEA, please? I have searched the internet, but am unable to find such data, although it must be there, somewhere.

Many thanks

LFH

Think there is a link in the following document

Thanks KenR, although I may have my work cut out making sense of it all :oops:

Second table on Commons Hansard, 24 Jun 2009 : Column 993W. This is the proportion of all pupils. The proportion of, say, 13-year-olds would be slightly lower, as grammar schools would tend to have proportionally more sixth formers.

This data is all very well but it is an average - very unrepresentative of some areas of the country.

For example - East Sussex 0% in GS - there aren't any!

Bucks - 33% in GS - it's a selective authority.

Even the data on SEN and FSM is misleading - individual schools vary enormously.

Thanks WP, I guess though these figures are representative of the country as a whole not of a selective LEA, am I right?

Aha, Guest55, you answered at the same time as me.
So in a county like Bucks, the proportion of children attending a GS is 33% because it is a selective authority.
Thanks

LFH

PS Guest55 can you post a link to where you can get this kind of information?

Sorry, I overlooked "LEA" in your question. Try the table on page 26 of this paper. It gives the proportion of state secondary school entrants entering grammar schools in the 14 most selective LEAs, but unfortunately it's 9 years old (Rochester and Gillingham is now called Medway).

Oh dear - that paper is so error ridden it's laughable!

CVA is not a good measure of GS performance ... high achievers at KS2 cannot make as much progress ...

Also the data is so out-of-date that no conclusions could now be drawn.
