The following article explores young people’s access to schools in England. The Education Policy Institute found that there is a geographical divide between those students who are likely to attend a high-performing school versus those who don’t.
In a stark example of a north-south divide, between 2010-2015 London schools saw students making more progress than those in the north of England. The Institute believe that wealthier families are able to move to areas where there are ‘better schools’ and this can attract more funding.
