Selection rule challenge

26th March 2004 at 00:00
Three Watford schools go to the High Court on Monday to seek a judicial review over a ruling they must cut the number of pupils they are allowed to select by ability from 35 to 25 per cent.

Watford boys' and girls' grammar schools and Parmiter's are challenging the ruling by the Office for the Schools Adjudicator.

If successful, publication of secondary places for 16,000 Hertfordshire pupils could be delayed. The grammar schools last year won a judicial review against a similar ruling.
