Sutton Trust LogoREPORT OVERVIEW

The annual Sutton Trust/Ipsos-Mori survey of 11-16 year olds on private tuition in 2018 showed that more than one in four young people in England and Wales have received private or home tuition, a figure which has risen by half since the Trust began collecting the data in 2005.

KEY FINDINGS

  • More than one in four (27%) young people in England and Wales have received private or home tuition, a figure which has risen by half since the Trust began collecting the data in 2005. Just over one in ten (11%) had been tutored during the most recent school year, consistent with results from the past few years.
  • Pupils in London were substantially more likely to have received private tuition than the rest of the country, with two in five pupils from London (41%) having had tuition at some point.
  • One in three (33%) pupils received tuition for specific GCSE exams, and 27% for a school entrance exam. Almost half (47%) said it was to help with their school work in general.
