GCSE Results Research

9th September 2014

The latest reasearch has discovered that children who attend pre-school get better GCSE results and earn more money in later life. 

The article published today at GOV.UK explains that the benefit of going to any type of pre-school, was equivalent to getting seven B grades at GCSE, rather than seven C grades. The researchers from the Institute of Education, Birkbeck, University of London, and the University of Oxford found that children who have attended pre-school will be £27,000 better off over a lifetime.

Sam Gyimah, education and childcare minister, said:  “Before they have even worn their school uniform for the first time, a child’s life chances are being decided. Early education not only sets a child off on the right foot at school but, as this extensive research shows, has effects that last right into the workplace.”
