A complaint about the admissions policy of a Catholic school in South Croydon has been partially upheld.
They key point of the complaint is that as an oversubscribed school it had a points system for admissions that put an emphasis on early baptism and activity within the church as oppososed to geographical location (i.e. how close they live) of potential applicants.
