Briefing paper 31: Impact of housing tenure on educational attainment

Friday 21 December 2018

This briefing paper looks at the impact of housing tenure on secondary school pupils’ educational attainment.

In Glasgow, as in many parts of the UK, tenure mixing, which aims to combine areas of mainly social rented housing with developments of owner occupied housing, has been a focus of regeneration policy.

One of the expected gains from housing tenure mixing is an improvement in pupil and school performance.

The research used a combination of data analysis and interviews with teachers and pupils in schools in Glasgow to look at the impacts of tenure mixing.
