SHOCK FIGURES: YOU need to pay for 27 new schools to educate mass influx of EU kids

And Britain needs to build 27 full-sized secondary schools just to educated the massive influx of foreign kids.

For the first time, a Government report has revealed the full extent of immigration from Europe on the state of the nation’s education system at a time of growing strain on classroom places.

Almost 700,000 school-aged children – one in 15 pupils nationally – have a parent who is a citizen of another European country.

This has more than doubled since 2007.

That figure includes children who moved to Britain with their parents and those who were born here after one or both parents migrated to the UK from their home countries.

In one year alone numbers of school-aged children coming to Britain from Europe reached a staggering 25,000.

At a time when the UK’s school-age population shrank slightly from 10.5million in 2007 to 10.4million, the number of children aged between five and 18 with at least one European parent more than doubled.

Last year, saw the biggest rise in the number of school-age children from European migrants’ families, when the figures increased from 565,000 in 2014 to 699,000 in 2015.

According to the Sunday Telegraph, 27 average-sized new secondary schools would be needed to accommodate such an influx.
