Grammar schools are cheaper…

Reader Suilven picked up this nice little factoid contained within a written answer to the question “what the average funding per child was in each (a) grammar school and (b) other secondary school in Northern Ireland in each of the past 10 years.” It turns out that Grammars are cheaper per pupil on average than other secondary schools by something in the region of 10% over the last ten years at least.
