Abstract

Key Findings - The 2003 and 2007 School Admissions Codes appear to have been at least in part responsible for changes in social composition of pupils at schools with criteria and arrangements that were subsequently deemed inadmissible. - These relationships still held once we had controlled for changes in neighbourhood composition. - Contrary to expectations, school type was not strongly associated with change in composition. - However, a significant number of the schools experiencing very large changes in composition were foundation or voluntary-aided and responsible for their own admissions.
