The Scottish Office education and industry department has today published a Statistical Bulletin giving results from the 1995 School Census.

The main findings are:

At September 1995, there were 3,821 schools in Scotland. Almost all of these, 3,706, were publicly funded (education authority, grant-aided and self- governing).

Over 847,000 pupils were attending schools in Scotland at September 1995, very similar to 1994.

Just over 49,000 pupils were attending education authority nursery schools in September 1995, almost the same as in the previous year, and representing 36.8% of children aged 3 and 4.

The average class size in primary schools was 24.8 in 1995, compared to 24.7 in 1993. The average class size in secondary schools was 19.5 in 1995, compared to 19.3 in 1993.

Most secondary schools offered some kind of work related activity, the most common being work experience on employers' premises in S4.

-- The Statistical Bulletin, Summary Results of the 1995 School Census, Edn/B1/1996/10, is published today by The Scottish Office Education and Industry Department. It is available from HMSO Books, 71 Lothian Road, Edinburgh, EH3 9AZ, Telephone (0131) 228 4181), price £2.
