Unsurprisingly HMC and GSA schools are setting the lead in terms of the amount of capital expenditure per pupil [HMC averaging £131/pupil p.a. and GSA averaging £125/pupil p.a.]. Capital investment in Prep Schools and the smaller ISA schools lags well behind [IAPS and ISA averaging £76/pupil p.a.]. Furthermore this analysis does not include staffing costs, where many of the larger, wealthier schools are investing heavily in ICT technical and classroom support.
