Dear Gwynedd Council,
I am supporting a family member whose son has been refused a place at Brynrefail secondary school despite living literally within a stones throw of the school after having to move from Anglesey due to the families personal circumstances.
To support the appeal on this decision; I (we) wish to know please how many pupils at Ysgol Brynrefail come from outside the catchment area?
It's well known in the area that there are many pupils that fall into this category because of the poor reputations of other schools in the area.
However, in my opinion, this should not adversely effect an applicant who lives on the doorstep.

Yours faithfully,

Robert Rhys Jones

Dear Robert Rhys Jones,

Freedom of Information (Ref T985)

Thank you for your recent request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

As your family member’s son has now been offered a place at Ysgol Brynrefail. I assume that you no longer need this information and therefore wish to withdraw your request for information.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Rhyddid Gwybodaeth,
Thank you for your kind and prompt reply.
You are quite correct that I no longer require this information, and I would not want to waste your limited recourses in gathering it.
It's an interesting question though, and I am "almost" disappointed not to know the answer :-)

Yours sincerely,

Robert Rhys Jones
