Abstract

Between 1999 and 2001 the Nuffield Foundation supported a research project into aspects of integrated education in Northern Ireland. The project was coordinated by Alan Smith, University of Ulster, and Tony Gallagher, Queen’s University Belfast. The final report waspresented to the Nuffield Foundation in 2002 and a seminar was held in London later the same year to discuss its implications, particularly in the light of discussions on faith schools in England. Given the range of information gathered during the project,Nuffield agreed to support a series of further seminars to consider the current and futurestate of integrated education in Northern Ireland.This report has been prepared for the first of these seminars and focuses on statistical dataon enrolment and performance in schools. The report is the first in a series of three:1. Participation, Profile and Performance,2. Integration in Practice,3. The Challenge of Transformation.
