Daily News Roundup - Private schooling for a 4-year-old could be just £72 a week

19th April 2017

Daily summary of the latest news and opinions from the world of independent education bought to you by Education Advisers... 

Private schooling for a 4-year-old could be just £72 a week

Real cost of private schooling is lower when savings in childcare are factored in, a new infographic from Burgess Hill Girls shows

But a new infographic designed by independent school Burgess Hill Girls demonstrates that the extended school day can reduce childcare costs while free after-school activities and clubs also represent a saving. And, once free breakfast and tea, on top of a hot lunch, are factored in, many families could find that an independent school education is within their reach.

Studies show that the standard for reading and mathematics at independent schools exceeds state schools even at the age of four. And, children who have an all-through schooling in the independent sector gain the equivalent of an additional two years of education.

One in four children miss out on first choice primary school in some areas

Thousands of families across the country were left disappointed as they found out which school their children have got a place at this September, on what has been dubbed "national offer day".

It comes as town hall chiefs warn that pressure on places will continue to intensify amid higher birth rates and rising immigration.

In London, almost 3,000 children were rejected by all three of their preferred schools, leaving local authorities scrambling to find them places elsewhere.

Children who are rejected from their schools of choice can end up having to travel long distances or take up a place at an under-performing school.
