About This Report


About one in three children (1.2 million students) attend private schools. The Private Schools industry is forecast to be worth $14.7 billion in 2011-12, up 4.0% on the previous year. Private or non-government school enrolments are split between Catholic schools and independent schools, which include religiously affiliated schools and special schools such as Montessori and Steiner schools. Private schools rely on state and federal governments for about 60% of their funding, generating the rest of their income from tuition fees, donations and, in some cases, income from affiliated religious organisations. Private schools are operated on a not-for-profit basis.

This industry consists of private schools that provide primary and/or secondary education. These schools are not administered by the various state or territory governments, but they must adhere to educational policies set by various governments. In most instances, the education provided by this industry is delivered to the students for a compulsory fee. Private schools can also be referred to as non-government 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.
