A Likert-type religious attitude scale was administered to 800 boys selected randomly from 4 age groups in a controlled (local education authority) and in a maintained (Catholic) secondary school in Belfast in 1969 and 1979. The results indicate that religious attitudes became significantly less favourable with age. At all age levels, and at each end of this decade, the mean scores of pupils attending the maintained school were significantly higher than those of pupils attending the controlled school. There were no overall decade effects but significant decade-byschool interaction effects were found.
