More than half of MPs went to comprehensives

More than half of MPs went to comprehensives

THE recent influx of 98 new MPs has changed the educational profile of the House of Commons, with fewer privately educated members than in previous parliaments.

29% of MPs in the new House of Commons were privately educated. This means that the new House is more representative of the wider electorate than that elected in 2015, when 32% of MPs had been to a fee-paying school.

The research, Parliamentary Privilege 2017, published by the Sutton Trust, finds that MPs educated at comprehensive schools now make up 51% of the House, a rise from 49% in 2015.

Comprehensive schools were attended by two-thirds (67%) of Labour MPs, over one-third (38%) of Conservative MPs and 88% of the SNP MPs. 18% of MPs went to selective state grammar schools, a similar level to the previous House.

The report also highlights the differences in educational backgrounds of male and female MPs. 32% of male MPs are privately educated, compared to only 24% of female MPs. This is despite men and women in the UK attending private schools in roughly equal numbers.
