Selection by Attainment and Aptitude in English Secondary Schools
Coldron, John; Willis, Ben; Wolstenholme, Claire
British Journal of Educational Studies, v57 n3 p245-264 Sep 2009
This paper presents the findings from a study of the admission arrangements for all secondary schools in England. We sketch the history of selection, answer questions about the scale and extent of selection by attainment or aptitude including an account of partially selective schools, consider the similarity and differences between selection by aptitude and by attainment and analyse some of the issues associated with both kinds of selection.
