The claimants sought judicial review in respect of the alleged failure of the London Borough of Croydon Council, as local education authority, to make suitable provision for their education, and more generally in respect of the alleged failings of the Council to provide sufficient secondary schooling in its area. The claimants are children, each of them 14 years of age, each an unaccompanied asylum seeker, each currently looked after by the Council under the relevant provisions of the Children Act 1989.
