‘Un­law­ful’ ad­mis­sions pol­icy at sixth form

The Sunday Telegraph - - News -

A gram­mar school op­er­ated an “un­law­ful” ad­mis­sions pol­icy for prospec­tive sixth form stu­dents, a watch­dog has found.

The Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Om­buds­man in­ves­ti­gated pro­ce­dures at Maid­stone Gram­mar School for Girls af­ter a com­plaint was made by a par­ent, whose son missed out on a place at the sixth form last year, de­spite meet­ing the school’s min­i­mum re­quire­ments.

It was found to use an ad­di­tional points-based sys­tem – a sys­tem which is not in­cluded in its pub­lished pol­icy.
