Request for information - Grammar school admissions

Roedd y cais yn rhannol lwyddiannus.

Dear Warwickshire County Council,

I am writing with a request for information, which is as follows:
I’d like the information for entrance tests for admission into year 7 of selective schools for which you oversee admissions, in each of the years 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021. If your admissions tests are in the Autumn of the year before admission those would be the tests in the previous year (ie 2020 test for admission in 2021).
If only partial information is available I would still like to see it.

In each of these years:
1. How many places were available for entry into year 7, and (if different) what percentage were allocated via an entrance test?
2. How many children sat entrance tests?
3. How many places were offered to pupils successful in the tests?
4. How many pupils were admitted into year seven?

Yours faithfully,

Fran Abrams

Warwickshire County Council
