§ 24. Sir John Hannam
To ask the Secretary of State for Education what support he proposes to give to those schools which wish to develop a specialism in(a) music, (b) art, (c) languages and (d) other areas of the curriculum.
§ Mr. Robin Squire
The Government are committed to extending choice and diversity in secondary school provision and want to see more schools develop their own specialisms. We are currently examining in detail how new types of specialist schools can best be supported, within available resources. We expect to make an announcement in due course.
