HC Deb 02 December 1980 vol 995 cc116-7W
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.

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.
