CHN 2: Cost per Secondary School Pupil
Summary definitionThe cost of secondary school education per pupil.
Why do we measure this?

Expenditure on secondary schools is a significant cost in terms of local authority education. Comparing between councils is important because this will help understand where variations occur and to inform discussion as to why variations exist. This in turn will help identify where best practice exists across councils so that learning can be shared.

The information on cost can be looked at alongside other information on attainment and the positive destinations of pupils.
