Number of FSM eligible pupils gaining entry to Bucks Grammar Schools

The request was successful.

Dear Buckinghamshire County Council,

I would be most grateful if you could provide the following information for the cohorts that entered state secondary schools in 2015, 2016 and 2017 in Buckinghamshire: (a) the total number of year 7 secondary school places allocated, (b) the total number of year 7 children in Buckinghamshire secondary schools known to be eligible for FSM in year 7, and (c) the total number of year 7 children in Buckinghamshire grammar schools known to be eligible for FSM in year 7.

A single census date would be fine (for example January).

Yours faithfully,

Neal Skipper
