Middle Schools in the United Kingdom have had something of a chequered history. Observers in the late 1960s might reasonably have predicted that every child in Britain would eventually pass through a Middle School at some point in his education career. But this was not to be. Reaching their peak in the early 1980s, Middle School number have fallen from nearly 2000 to under 200 in recent years.
The site provides an up-to-date list of all the Middle Schools in England (the few schools in Wales and Scotland long since having closed). It also has a brief history of the development of the schools as well as links to other articles and websites relating to them.
