§ Mr. Ernie Ross
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what are the average annual fees at each grant-aided and independent school in Scotland.117W
§ Mr. Alexander Fletcher
The maximum day tuition fees payable at the beginning of the current session at grant-aided secondary schools were as follows:
Name of school Maximum fee per session for day secondary education £ Dollar Academy 843 Benedictine convent school 405 St. Joseph's college 693 Albyn school for girls 840 Robert Gordon's college 735 St. Margaret's school 798 George Heriot's school 918 St. Mary's music school 890 Craigholme school for girls 732 Kelvinside academy 708 Laurel Bank school 990 St. Aloysius college 645 Westbourne school for girls 948 High school of Dundee 870 Daniel Stewarts and Melville college 1,080 Mary Erskine school George Watson's college Hutchesons' grammar school 657 Park school 1,140 St. Columba's school Morrison's academy 786
An average would have no meaning as the schools vary greatly in size and in the matters covered by the fee. Information about fees at independent schools is not held by my Department.
