(*) The average attendance figures are final totals from Government returns of later years, not from the Annual Reports of Inspection.

(**) Wesleyan schools were included with British schools between 1863 and 1877. The figures for Wesleyan schools after 1877 differ from Wesleyan estimates as some of these schools continued to be included as British schools.
