Fee‐paying Schools in Britain—a peculiarly English phenomenon

Publication Summary

ABSTRACT This paper reports on the numerical insignificance of fee‐paying schools in Wales, suggesting that they are even fewer and smaller than they appear in official records. The report has two implications for educational research. Firstly it provides a further example of difference between the education systems of England and Wales, and secondly, it shows that the movement of a long‐established educational market, when under threat, is towards similarity of provision.
