Private tuition is the hidden secret of British education. Within an educational ‘arms race’ that entrenches advantage for those who can afford private school fees or homes close to good comprehensives and grammars, it has remained largely in the shadows. Since 2005, the Sutton Trust has polled young people through Ipsos MORI on their experiences of private tuition, helping lift the veil on its prevalence. In this new report, the authors present the latest polling, along with new evidence from the international PISA survey.
