You will find a more detailed article relating to 2016-17 decisions here. There has been a considerable fall in the number of Ombudsman complaints relating to school admissions. This is because most complaints in Kent and Medway are about grammar school appeals, and the large majority of grammars have now converted to become academies. Academy complaints are considered by the Education Funding Agency. As a result, the historical pattern has become irrelevant and I have deleted it.
