    This chart presents details concerning Secondary School Types in the UK from 2000 to 2009 and reflects the significant increase in Community School attendance during this period. Insofar as the statistics from the year 2005 indicate predictable change in school attendance figures in the UK, these results to some degree demonstrate long-term trends.

    To begin with, it is apparent that the percentage of students attending Specialist Schools has remained consistent demonstrating a very moderate decrease of 2%. In other words, about 1/10th of the students have consistently chosen Specialist Schools during the period of study.

    The most notable decreases in attendance occurred in Grammar and Voluntary-controlled Schools. Attendance has gradually decreased in the former by half while the latter has seen even more marked reductions, i.e., from 52 to 20%.

    From these figures it is readily observable that a very significant shift in school attendance progressively occurred during the period of study. Whereas only 12% of students attended Community Schools in 2000, that number had increased to 58% by 2009. [172 words]
