Grammar Schools: Disadvantaged

Volume 475: debated on Monday 28 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families (1) what proportion of pupils are entitled to free school meals at each grammar school; (201054)

(2) what his most recent estimate is of the proportion of grammar school pupils entitled to free school meals; what estimate he has made of the equivalent figure in the local catchment area of each such school; and if he will make a statement.

A table showing the proportion of pupils known to be eligible for free school meals in grammar schools is as follows.

Information about catchment areas of individual grammar schools is not held centrally.
