Gulf in spending on pupils between schools in the region From The Northern Echo

SOME schools in the region spend more than twice as much on their pupils than others, figures show.A number of secondary schools in the North-East and North Yorkshire paid out more than £9,000 per pupil in 2009-10, while others spent less than £4,500. The national average is £5,212.Among the highest spenders in the region was Gillbrook College, in South Bank, Middlesbrough, which spent £9,127 per pupil.In comparison, Nunthorpe School, in Nunthorpe, Middlesbrough, spent only £4,389.Elsewhere, Durham Community Business College, in Ushaw Moor, near Durham City, paid out just under £8,000, while St Leonard’s Roman Catholic Comprehensive School, in Durham City, spent £4,440 per pupil.The figures also revealed big differences between spending on supply teachers, catering and administration costs. The data has been revealed for the first time as part of annual school league tables published today by the Department for Education.
