Independent Schools' Census, January 2011
Some of the information has already been published as part of ‘Schools’ Census 2011: Final Results’ (SDR 153/2011), but much is published here for the first time. The figures are based primarily on the STATS1 census returns for 2011. Several tables of historical information are also provided going back to 2000.
The key points from the latest release are:
- The percentage of full-time equivalent (FTE) pupils in independent schools in Wales has decreased slightly to 1.9 per cent from 2.0 per cent last year.
- Powys and Cardiff have the greatest number of independent schools, with 10 each. However, the highest percentage of FTE pupils in independent schools is in Monmouthshire, with 11.4 per cent, followed by Conwy with 5.2 per cent and then Cardiff with 4.7 per cent.
- At January 2011, 16.5 per cent of boys and 11.0 per cent of girls at independent schools were boarders.
- Pupil Teacher Ratios for independent schools are lower than in the maintained sector, the 2011 figure of 8.0 being less than half that of the 18.2 at maintained schools.
- The incidence of pupils with statements of special educational needs was higher in independent schools, 4.9 per cent, than in maintained schools, 2.9 per cent. Conversely, the incidence of pupils with special educational needs identified by the school (but with no statement) is lower in independent schools, 10.6 per cent, than in maintained schools, 18.6 per cent.
