Has private schooling become financially out of reach?

April 28th, 2023 by Lauren

Private school fees have rocketed by 19% in the past year, prompting many parents to remove their children as the cost of living climbs ever higher. We at Estia Tuition are concerned about the recent spike in costs for education as this is a concerning trend affecting many families across the country.

We understand that private schools offer a unique and high-quality education experience, but these rising costs may make this option even further out of reach for many families. It is also a troubling trend for the education sector as a whole, as it limits the accessibility of quality education to those who can afford it.

While we appreciate the value of private education, we also recognise the importance of exploring alternative options, such as homeschooling. Homeschooling can provide a flexible and cost-effective alternative for families who want to ensure that children receive a quality education without the high costs of private schools. So, what should the following steps be for those who are concerned?

At Estia Tuition, we believe that education should be accessible to everyone, regardless of their financial situation. Did you know that 32% of our customer base currently homeschool their children? As the UK’s leading tuition platform, we want to encourage families to explore all available options regarding their children’s education and make informed decisions based on their unique needs and circumstances. With education at its peak of accessibility due to social media and having to adapt during crises such as teacher strikes and the COVID-19 pandemic, there is no better time than to consider your learning options.
