Majority who took part in public consultation opposed idea to make Scotland's last all-girls state school coeducational
Parents, pupils and teachers are split over whether or not Scotland’s last remaining all-girls state school should start admitting boys, with the campaign groups on either side of the argument claiming that the results of the public consultation support their stance.
Figures from the public consultation on whether Glasgow's 120-year-old, all-girls secondary, Notre Dame High School, should become coeducational show that overall 54.3 per cent want the school to remain girls-only.
However, when the vote is broken down, it shows that secondary and primary parents find themselves on different sides of the fence – as do pupils.
The majority of primary parents (56.4 per cent) and pupils (61.2 per cent) voted for the school to admit boys. The majority of secondary parents (78.1 per cent) and pupils (82.2 per cent), meanwhile, voted for the options that would result in Notre Dame High remaining a girls’ school.
