The study, conducted by Sheila’s Wheels, showed that average parents in the UK spend as much as £1,247 per year on their child’s education, an amount that excluded tuition fees. Class trips accounted for an estimated £137 per year with one in ten spending a further £200 on extra-curricular activities. The findings also revealed that half of all parents found these expenses to be a lot higher than they had previously expected.
One of the highest figures to be revealed from the survey was that of school dinners, with the average cost coming in at £242 annually. Renowned for their commendable advice on all areas of the economic sector, the honest lender, Dosh Express, share their thoughts on the topic.
“It appears school dinners are costing parents a considerable amount each year, especially for those with more than one offspring. Parents can make themselves considerable savings by preparing packed lunches instead.”
A representative from the firm also goes on to explain more ways in which costs can be brought down.
“Although the prospect of the new school term getting underway can seem a little daunting, there is a lot that can be done to lower expenses. Finding second hand uniforms, as well as being thrifty with items like stationary can really help with the monthly budget.”
