Brent bottoms out

29th September 1995 at 01:00
The London borough of Brent, which has suffered a 40 per cent deterioration in its pupil-teacher ratios since 1988, has gone from being one of the capital's best-funded local authorities to one of its worst in eight years.

Analysis of budgets in Brent's neighbouring councils and others similar to it has revealed sharp differences in funding. The three best-funded London LEAs are now Kensington and Chelsea, Camden and Westminster. In contrast to Brent where a pupil is worth Pounds 1,839, pupils in Kensington are valued at Pounds 2,910, Pounds 2,551 in Camden and Pounds 2,484 in Westminster.
