HC Deb 08 January 1990 vol 164 cc477-83W
Mr. Norris

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science if he will list by gender of pupils and name single-sex schools which have been closed since 1985.

Mr. Alan Howarth

The names of the single sex maintained and non-maintained schools that have closed in 1985 and onwards are given in the table. The table includes maintained schools that have been closed following the approval of statutory proposals; in some cases for the purpose of amalgamation.

The table is not fully up to date as some replies from local education authorities are still awaited confirming closures in 1989.

Independent schools are shown in the education authority in which they are situated.
