School News

The debate on whether private schools’ ability to claim charitable status (a handy tax break) should depend on their willingness to share their sports facilities with state schools has been long and ongoing. The amendment to the Charities Bill was defeated 156 to 106 in parliament in 2015. Although there has been no requirement set by the Charitable Commission to do so, they did update their guidance in 2015 to encourage private schools to report on how they are opening access to their sports and art facilities.

This year’s figures from the ISC, show that of the 603 members with pools, 304 already share them in some way with state schools. Those headteachers involved in this sharing initiative talk of a win-win as the facilities can then be used at times when it would otherwise be empty.
