Dear Tower Hamlets Borough Council,

I would like to know the following;

1. How many children reside within the borough? Please split these figures into 3 categories; Nursery School Age, Infant/Junior School Age, Secondary School Age.

2. Please list the amount of available school places within the borough? again into 3 categories, Nursery School Places, Infant/Junior School Places, Secondary School Places.

3. Further breaking down the figures (as a separate answer) above could you please list the names of each school within the borough and the amount of places next to the name of each school? again, into 3 categories, Nursery Schools, Infant/Junior Schools, Secondary Schools.

4. Please list now how many children attend schools within the borough, who do not reside within the borough? listing names of other boroughs, and again split into the 3 individual categories = Nursery, Infant/Junior & Secondary Schools.

Yours faithfully,
