Census data shows the borough has the lowest number of white pupils in its state schools
Brent has the most ethnically mixed primary schools in outer London according to new figures.
The data obtained from this year’s schoo cenus also shows the borough has the lowest number of white children as a percentage of total pupils in its state primary and secondary schools out of the 18 other outer London boroughs.
Out of the 44,914 pupils in state funded primary and secondary schools, under 3,000 are classed as White British, making less than 10 per cent, compared to over 60 per cent for Bromley - the least diverse borough.
In a marked difference to its neighbouring boroughs, Brent’s state secondary schools have only 1,000 white british students out of almost 19,000 students compared to 15,470 in Bromley and over 3,000 in Ealing.
