STATE-FUNDED schools are closing the gap on fee-pay­ing schools when it comes to send­ing stu­dents to third-level ed­u­ca­tion.

Col­lege en­try rates are at a his­toric high with two in three post-pri­mary schools now send­ing at least 70pc of their pupils to third-level.

More than 50 State-funded schools are show­ing the same 100pc col­lege trans­fer rate, closely fol­lowed by large num­bers of oth­ers at 90pc and above.
