Annal Nayyar reports: school rates going to increase?

Schools are facing a £131m rise in business rates in the next five years – with bills more than doubling for some. The figures suggest that the bill for state schools will rise from £791m to £922m a year by 2020-21.

A government spokesman said: “We simply do not recognise these figures. In fact, state schools will see a fall in their bills of 2% – equivalent to £16m a year. The revaluation of business rates means nearly three quarters of properties will see no change or a fall in their bills.”
