R (on the application of Goldsmith International Business School) v Secretary of State for the Home Department

Immigration – Education. The claimant sought judicial review of the defendant Secretary of State's decision to refuse its application for highly trusted sponsor status on the basis of its refusal rate. The Administrative Court, in allowing the application, held that the Secretary of State's refusals had been based on an erroneous understanding of the meaning of the relevant guidelines. Further, the Secretary of State had not paid undue regard to the claimant's past record of failure to report students, but had paid insufficient regard to the current capacity and performance of the claimant in reporting unenrolled students who had been refused entry to the United Kingdom.
