The General Secondary Education industry provides education to students between 11 and 18 years of age. The majority of schools are funded directly by the central government or by local education authorities, although the industry also includes privately funded independent schools that account for approximately 18.4% of industry revenue. The majority of secondary schools are either academies or maintained schools, which operate according to government guidelines and are therefore directly influenced by government policy.
The industry covers education at the secondary level. Secondary schools typically include the years 7 to 11 and may also include years 12 and 13, which are commonly known as the sixth form. ‘All-through’ schools, which combine primary and secondary education, are also included. The majority of secondary schools, such as grammar schools, non-selective comprehensive schools and academies are state funded, but the industry also includes privately funded independent schools.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
