More than 80 state schools in England have no white British pupils, Government figures show
The number of such schools appears to have more than doubled over the past five years. The new figures follow research showing that white Britons are retreating from areas dominated by ethnic minorities, to be replaced by immigrants and other ethnic minorities. One school that is understood to have no white British pupils is Gladstone Primary in Peterborough, which is dominated by students from the Punjab. None of its 440 pupils has English as a first language. The new figures follow a study published recently by the Left-leaning think tank Demos which showed that white Britons are moving out of areas where they are in a minority at the same time as the ethnic minority population was growing. The study said that 45% of ethnic minorities in England and Wales, about four million people, live in areas where less than half the population is white British.
