FOI Disclosure Log

Customer Request Details

19 June 2020

. I am contacting you in regard to my Mathematics Internal assessment, which is part of my IB course. The investigation is finding the number of new (state) secondary schools which will be needed with the addition of the new build houses emerging in Stortford Fields. In order to carry out this investigation I need to acquire some statistics, and was curious whether you could either help or point me in the direction to someone who could provide me with them. The statistics I require are-

The population of 7-11 year olds in Bishops Stortford
The average number of pupils accepted in secondary schools in Bishops Stortford
The number of new houses being built in Bishops Stortford
The average number of children in a household in Bishops Stortford

These statistics in the assessment will allow me to firstly use the population of years 3, 4, 5 and 6 and the average number of pupils accepted into a secondary school, to estimate the remaining amount of student that"ll need to be placed in the "new school". Further more the number of new house and average number of children per household will let me see how many new children we would need to account for.

I look forward to hearing from you.
