Credit due to Girls' Trust

I was pleased to see Graeme Paton's article ("'Misuse' of scholar funds to help rich", TES, September 2) about the excellent GCSEs obtained by the first cohort of open access pupils at The Belvedere school, Liverpool, where all pupils have been accepted solely on merit regardless of their families' ability to pay.

The costs of the scheme come to more than pound;2 million a year. The TES reported that these are paid for by the Sutton Trust. This scheme was jointly introduced by ourselves and the Girls' Day School Trust, and we have both funded the scheme since 2000.
