To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills under what circumstances it is possible for (a) local education authority maintained schools, (b) academies and (c) city colleges which have an admissions policy which requires prospective pupils to undertake an assessment of ability and or aptitude to charge the pupil or parent for information about the pupil's performance in the assessment except where the information is sought under the Data Protection Act 1998. [131289]

Maintained schools, academies and city colleges cannot charge for or in connection with admission.If the request for information about a pupil's performance in an assessment for ability or aptitude is unrelated to the application for admission, or any appeal against a decision not to admit the pupil, then they may charge for supplying that information.
