§ Mr. Jenkins
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what his policy is on the most appropriate size of a secondary school to deliver an acceptable level of subject choice to pupils; and what guidance he has issued to local education authorities on this. 
§ Mr. Miliband
We do not prescribe an appropriate size of secondary school to deliver an acceptable level of subject choice to pupils, and we have not issued any guidance to local education authorities on this. What is important is that secondary schools provide a high quality, broad and balanced curriculum as set out in sections 78 to 96 of the Education Act 2002. Schools can collaborate with other schools and colleges to broaden the range of options available to their pupils.
