HC Deb 18 July 1973 vol 860 c150W
Mr. Sandelson

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many comprehensive schools in England and Wales are without sixth form facilities; and what proportion of the total number of comprehensive schools this represents.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

The information is not available precisely in this form. Of a total of 1,423 comprehensive schools in England in January 1972 there were 370, amounting to 26 per cent., mainly for pupils up to the minimum school-leaving age.
