Dear The Royal Latin School,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of The Royal Latin School's handling of my FOI request 'Admission Appeals'.

It is possible for the school to cross-reference the record of donations made to the 600 Fund with the details of those admitted under appeal, and so this information should be disclosed.

It is also possible to ascertain the median SSTT scores, as well as those who were admitted on appeal as this information is held by the school, and should therefore be disclosed.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/a...

Yours faithfully,

Glynn Freeman
