54. Mr. R. C. Mitchell
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many single-sex secondary colleges catering for the 16-plus age group there are; and if he will make a statement on his policy towards single-sex secondary colleges.
§ Mr. Armstrong
There are four single-sex sixth-form colleges either in existence or expected to start admitting pupils in the near future. The Government's policy towards single-sex education is set out in the White Paper "Equality for Women" (Cmnd. 5724).
