This is interesting - from the recent Sutton Trust report: http://www.suttontrust.com/our-work/res ... wnload/238
Obviously the Warwickshire figures are rather skewed by the Central and Northern regions not having any Grammar schools - it would be interesting to see a figure for those actually resident in the South/East areas.
Local Authority %age secondary pupils %age of grammar pupils not
attending Grammar schools resident in Local Authority area
Birmingham 8.2 31.2
Warwickshire 7.9 22.8
Telford and Wrekin 7.8 55.6
Walsall 5.6 45.4
Wolverhampton 4.3 50.8
To clarify these figures are pupils attending secondary schools in the local authority area - so it's 7.9% of secondary pupils in Warwickshire schools, not 7.9% of Warwickshire resident secondary students (some of whom may of course cross borders and be included in the Birmingham figures for example).
