“Not perhaps the kind of breadline, soup-kitchen need…”

This is interesting. Private schools have charitable status because they provide bursaries. But you can claim for bursaries even if you earn £80,000 per year, and you can pay a consultant £120-£240 pounds a pop to hunt out bursaries for you. Nauseating article in the Telegraph: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/education/educationadvice/11167178/Paying-for-private-school-what-you-need-is-a-bursary.html

One thought on ““Not perhaps the kind of breadline, soup-kitchen need…”

  1. Yes, bursaries/charitable status issue…….it’s another massive loophole big enough to drive an oil tanker through…..The independent schools avoid huge amounts of tax under the guise of being a charity, because they can offer charity to already wealthy people….it’s just plain old immoral corruption. And I remember in my private school they were always banging on about the importance of good behaviour and good morals. Yuk..
