Details

Report and supporting data showing schools’ spending trends per pupil and in total on:

  • teachers
  • education staff
  • exam fees
  • education consultancy
  • supply staff

The report explains how we compiled a single time series of school spending data from August 2002 to July 2017.

We calculated spending on a per pupil basis. From 2012 onward, we combined the separate spending returns for local-authority-maintained schools and academies, which have some differences.
