Stanley Burnton J

||Jonathan Moffett (instructed by Alex Jack) for the school.

Human rights - Right to education - Expulsion of pupil - Breach of statutory duty - Claimant alleging breach of Convention rights - Claim for damages - European Convention on Human Rights, First Protocol, art 2.
The duty created by art2 of the First Protocol was imposed on the state, and not on any particular domestic institution. It did not create a right to be educated in any particular school or in any particular manner. Expulsion from a school of a pupil who had no access to alternative educational facilities, such as enrolment in another school, might cause a breach of art2, therefore raising the possibility that the school might be liable for damages; but if the pupil was able to have access to efficient education elsewhere, no breach of his Convention right would be involved.
