The charts compare changes in the shares of five different items which comprised the yearly

expenses of a British school between 1981 and 2001.

Overall, while the shares of three items experienced rises, there were declines in the remaining

two. Moreover, academic staff salaries contributed the largest proportion of expenditure

throughout the survey, whereas insurance had the smallest share.

Wages paid to the teaching staff accounted for the most significant proportion of expenditure

in 1981 (40%) and went up by a quarter before declining slightly. In comparison, the salaries of

non-academic employees were responsible for less than a third of all expenses in 1981, but their

share dipped substantially by 13% over the course of these 20 years.

The share of furniture and equipment was initially as high as that of educational resources

(15%), but while the former dropped by 2/3 before rising fivefold, the latter experienced a

marked rise after which it halved, reaching just below 10%.

The contribution of insurance had risen minimally from 2% to 3% by 1991, before increasing

almost threefold in 2001.
