Supplementary schools are volunteer-led spaces, offering educational, cultural and language provision for mainly black and minority ethnic (BME) children and young people. Research has consistently shown that they offer an invaluable resource for many pupils, but are often overlooked by mainstream schools and education funders. This report seeks to explore the value of supplementary schools so that their contribution is more widely understood beyond grassroots communities and pockets of academia. In a changing cultural, social and economic climate, it also considers how supplementary schools might adapt, particularly to helping their pupils make successful transitions from school to further and higher education and employment.
