Dear P Pillai
  
Thank you for contacting Buckinghamshire Council and your request for information regarding 
secondary school allocations.
Request:
As the 2nd round of secondary school allocations (April 1st) is completed and acceptance deadline 
day is passed, can I know how many applicants declined the offer for all the 13 grammar schools and 
any vacant seats if any, please? (that's, what is the latest status of seat allocation for all 13 schools).
 
This request has been handled under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. 
Please refer to our response below:
Response:
The Council considers a ‘fewer than five’ response to be appropriate in this case. A more accurate 
number or response to the questions asked, would potentially release personal information where 
individuals could be identified, either from this information alone, or a combination of this 
information and other information otherwise available to the public.
 
Section 40(2) provides an exemption from disclosure for information that is (a) the personal data of 
an individual other than the requester and (b) where disclosure would breach any of the data 
protection principles in Article 5 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
 
In this case disclosure of a more specific response to the questions asked would be unfair to the 
individuals concerned.

 *Note that a 'declination' may mean one of two things: 
a) the family have declined the place because they do not need/want a school place, or
 b) the place has been taken away from the child in order for a higher preference school to be 
offered as part of an allocation round (each child may only have one school offer at a time).
**There are no vacant places currently at any Buckinghamshire grammar school, for entry to Y7 in 
September 2022, and each school has a waiting list: in the event an offer is declined, the vacant 
place will be filled from the waiting list.
Please quote the reference number 1446821 in any future communications.
If you are dissatisfied with the handling of your request, you have the right to ask for an internal 
review. Internal review requests should be submitted within two months of the date of receipt of the 
response to your original request and should be addressed to:
 
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.xxx.xx or by writing to us at Information Management, 
Buckinghamshire Council, The Gateway, Gatehouse Road, Aylesbury, HP19 8FF. 
 
  

If you are still dissatisfied with the Council’s response after the internal review, you have a right of 
appeal to the Information Commissioner at:
The Information Commissioner's Office
Wycliffe House
Water Lane
Wilmslow
Cheshire SK9 5AF.
