Ali v Lord Grey School

LTL 22/3/2006; [2006] 2 WLR 690; [2006] 2 All ER 457; [2006] HRLR 20; [2006] UKH L14; Times, March 22, 2006; Independent, March 28, 2006; 2006-03-22

The House of Lords held that the European Convention on Human Rights 1950 Protocol 1 Art. 2 did not confer a right to be educated at a particular school but rather conferred a right not to be denied access to the general level of educational provision available in the Member State.  On the evidence a pupil had not been excluded from school education in breach of his Convention rights in circumstances where he had chosen not to take up the school’s invitation to attend a meeting to re-admit him to the school, nor its offers to provide work for him to do from home and to arrange alternative tuition.
