Dear H Scott,

Thanks for your quick response. Apologies for forgetting to specify! Please can I have this information broken down for each academic year listed: 2014/15, 2015/16, 2016/17, 2017/18, 2018/19, 2019/20 (so far).

If any of this data is unavailable, please provide me with all the data that you can.

Also, to amend my first message, instead of "A £100 penalty charge" please consider it to say "A penalty charge" (of any amount), and I seemed to forget to list "Class C Drugs" as a category. Apologies for this!

Yours sincerely,

Jack Fifield

Dear J Wallis,

Thank you very much for your response.

Are the figures for final warnings (322 for last year, 138 this year so far) all to do with drugs? What further action was taken against these students?

For the 'notice to quit' figures, were these all to do with drugs, or is this inclusive of all reasoning?

Thanks very much.

Yours sincerely,

Jack Fifield
