Daily Star Sunday - - FRONT PAGE - BAT­TLE OF WILLIES

PRI­VATE school pupils are more likely to get in­tern­ships than their state-ed­u­cated peers.

A study showed a quar­ter have work place­ments lined up this sum­mer, com­pared to less than one in ten state school pupils.

Stu­dents who have high-earn­ing par­ents are also more likely to land in­tern­ships.

A fifth of pupils from fam­i­lies with £80,000 to £100,000 an­nual in­comes will com­plete them this year.

In com­par­i­son, just one in ten of those with par­ents earn­ing £15,000 to £30,000 will get the same chance.

Mai Fenton, from UNiDAYS which com­mis­sioned the poll, said: “Stu­dents from pri­vate schools are far more likely to get these op­por­tu­ni­ties, putting state school stu­dents at a dis­ad­van­tage.” ROAD chiefs fi­nally fixed pot­holes near Ge­off Up­son’s New Zealand home af­ter 18 months when he painted 65ft willies on them.
