Private school fees

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Bedford Borough Council should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Bedford Borough Council,

Under the FOI Act I would like to request the following information.

1. For each of the financial years 19/20/21/22 please specify how much private school fees have increased or decreased in the Bedfordshire area, and which private schools saw the biggest change.

2. On average, how much have grandparents, or the older generation helped contribute when paying these fees.

Please provide this information in spreadsheet format (CSV) or XLS).

Yours faithfully,

Cameron Gillies
