School admissions are considered within the context of the system established by the Education Act 1944. The strengths and weaknesses of a planning model centred upon local education authorities are discussed, and consideration is given to the constitutional nature and implications of change to the education system in the period from 1979 to 1988. The legal system’s limited contribution is highlighted in cases arising from disputes relating to school admissions throughout this period.

Keywords:   school admissions, Education Act 1944, local education authorities, planning, legal cases, accountability
