← Church schools shun poorest pupils

hiss's Avatar Jump to comment 14 by hiss

In my experience of working in a Church of England school, pupils were not selected according to wealth. I am not entirely sure how you could achieve this. However, it is most definitely the case that wealthy parents who live in the area (or who have moved to the area) are more likely than poorer parents to work hard to get their child into a C of E school. This may involve getting their names on the list sooner, or pretending to be Christian more convincingly.
