Muslim pupils fill the pews at Anglican schools
by Sian Griffiths
Muslim pupils outnumber Christian children in more than 30 church schools, including one Church of England primary that has had a "100% Muslim population".
St Thomas in Werneth, Oldham, is reported by the local diocese to have no Christian pupils, while at Staincliffe C of E Junior School in Batley, West Yorkshire, 98% of pupils "come from a Muslim background", according to its most recent religious inspection report in 2015.
The Church of England estimated that about 20 of its schools had more Muslim pupils than Christians and 15 Roman Catholic schools had majority Muslim pupils, according to the Catholic Education Service.
