Dear TEAM, OSA,

My apologies for not responding sooner. I am interested in the annual reports that KCC is required to submit to the adjudicator regarding any issues with admissions.

I am also interested in any issue raised regarding the fact that all Kent grammar schools hold their tests on the same day thus preventing fair access to the other schools, some of which are situated just 5 miles apart in the case of the Harvey grammar and Dover grammar for boys which are the schools which i am most interested in.

Also please can you tell me whether the adjudicator has investigated whether the fact that these schools along with all kent grammar schools are knowingly and regularly holding the tests at the same time has been considered ( preventing most but not all children from sitting both the dover boys test and the shepway test as the harvey grammar had in the region of 150 boys sit the test in the afternoon this year thus allowing a small proportion of children to sit both tests in which a higher proportion are found suitable for grammar than through the 11+)

Yours sincerely,

Claire Thornton
