Schools: Coastal Areas

Volume 487: debated on Tuesday 3 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what national challenge schools are in or near the principal seaside towns of England. (244451)

A list of such schools below 30 per cent. 5 A*-C including English and maths (and therefore within the National Challenge) is provided as follows. There are 39 such schools in or near the principal seaside towns of England. In addition, we are working with local authorities to provide support for some schools which are above the floor target in order to secure or consolidate their performance.
