Abstract

Two examples from the emerging geography of education in England are presented to cast light on the geography of choice. The first examines recent changes in the choice between private and state education at the regional scale. This highlights a marked gender shift as part of an increasing spatial polarisation of private education. The second focuses on the local scale. It studies the effect of pupils' local residential environments on their attainment, and shows the consequences of this influence on school performance indicators. These indicators will be used in the marketing of state schools and will affect parental choice between schools. Finally the two scales of analysis are considered together to suggest probable future regional differences in the incidence of parental choice.
