Mr Barry Taylor, Communications and Marketing Director for Bristol University, complained that an article was incorrect when it suggested that the University discriminated against independent school pupils when considering applicants for admission.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published a letter from the complainant which set out the Universitys approach to admissions making clear that it drew from schools of every kind, people of outstanding academic ability, motivation and potential. Indeed, the 2005 Independent Schools Council report had found no evidence of bias against applicants from its schools.

Report: 72
