HC Deb 23 February 1921 vol 138 c978W

asked the President of the Board of Education if he can furnish a list or give the number of secondary schools in England and Wales, not being private schools, which are now independently supported, receiving no grants from the Board or from a local education authority?


There are at present about 120 schools of the kind referred to in the question, which are recognised by the Board as efficient. The Board have no reliable information as to how many other schools of the kind there may be in England and Wales, and it is often doubtful whether a school should be classified as a secondary school, but there are probably not less than 150 of them.
