Young people from wealthier homes are significantly more likely to have additional help than their poorer peers, according to the Sutton Trust report.

In total, 27% of the 2,800 11- to 16-year-olds questioned said they have had private tuition. This proportion is up compared with 18% who said the same in 2005, but down slightly from a peak of 30% in 2017.”
