HC Deb 21 July 1960 vol 627 c59W
66. Mr. Short

asked the Minister of Education how many comprehensive schools are now in existence in England and Wales; how many pupils receive their education in these schools; and what assessment he has made of their General Certificate of Education results.

Sir D. Eccles

In January, 1960, 128,834 pupils were on the registers of 130 comprehensive schools. It is too early to make a sound assessment of their G.C.E. results.
