Daily News Roundup - Scottish Education Secretary urges state and private schools to work together

28th April 2017

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

Pupil numbers at British independent 'franchises' rocket – overtaking the number sent to board in the UK from overseas

The number of pupils educated in Independent School Council international campuses outstrips overseas the number of pupils taught in Britain for the first time

For the first time, British independent schools are now teaching more foreign pupils in overseas campuses than they are in UK schools.

Partnerships between independent and state schools have also risen to its highest ever level, according to the Independent School Council (ISC). The ISC has a membership which covers about 80 per cent of the total number of pupils taught in independent schools in the UK.

According to the 2017 census of its members, the number of pupils taught in overseas "franchise schools" has exceeded the number of overseas pupils in schools in the UK.

ISC members currently operate 59 campuses abroad, educating 31,773 pupils – an increase from 46 campuses last year with 27,619 pupils. In contrast, this year there were 27,281 pupils in ISC schools whose parents were overseas.

Scottish Education Secretary urges state and private schools to work together

Private and state schools should collaborate to drive up standards of education, John Swinney has said.

The Education Secretary said he was interested in learning from independent schools to “foster an atmosphere of collaboration”.

John Edward, director of Scis, welcomed the comments and said private schools saw themselves as part of the wider Scottish system.

Many schools already collaborate on an ad hoc basis to offer facilities or courses that would not otherwise be available.

Mr Edward said: “If ultimately Mr Swinney’s agenda is to make sure every child has access to the same level of opportunity then that is something we would be happy to help with.
