The chapter analyses the flows of pupils between primary and secondary schools in London using administrative data by ethnicity. The chapter finds that although there is segregation in the sense that the ethnic distribution of pupils between schools varies from a nearest-school assignment. However, it also finds that there is no evidence that segregation is increasing year-on-year but that it fluctuates according to demographic change over the study period.
