Request

Please can you provide figures on the number of pupils offered a place (conditional or non-conditional) from each of the following six schools:

Eton
Harrow
St Paul’s School
St Paul’s Girl’s School
Westminster School, London
Wycombe Abbey School, Bucks

Please can you give totals (number of offers) for each individual school for the last four academic years AND the number of offers made during the current admissions round (five consecutive years in total). (For clarification I am referring to the academic years 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008.) 

I understand you will not have processed all offers for the current admissions round. Therefore, please can I have figures for the offers made up to, and including, January 4 2012. In addition, please can you supply me with the total number of offers made in each of the five academic years (up to January 4 for the current round).
