§ Mr. William Shelton
Precise figures are not available, but estimates based upon total costs at the institutions concerned suggest that gross institutional unit costs in 1980–81 were as follows:60W
£ Pupils aged 16 and over in maintained secondary schools 1,235 Students (full-time equivalent) on non-advanced courses in major establishments 1,680
These estimates are not directly comparable; they reflect considerable differences in the size and nature of the institutions involved, the student groups and modes of attendance, provision of courses, facilities and equipment, and organisation and staffing.
Estimates for 1981–82 should be available shortly.
