Independent School

Any school that provides full-time education for five or more pupils of compulsory school age, which is not maintained by an LA or a non-maintained special school. As these schools are not funded by the state, they obtain most of their finances from fees paid by parents and income from investments. Some of the larger independent schools are known as public schools, whilst most boarding schools are independent.
