The figures given are derived by dividing the total budgeted running cost by the school roll, where the school roll is the number of pupils on the roll at the time of the annual school census in September 1992, including pupils of any special unit, and the total budgeted school running costs are as specified by the School Board regulations in respect of the period 1 April 1993 to 31 March 1994.

No entry is given for Irvine Royal Academy because of special circumstances following a local rationalisation.
