The amount spent on providing education for children attending school in Akrotiri in each year since 2010 is shown in the following table:

Financial year Amount (£ million)
2010-11 1.978
2011-12 1.942
2012-13 1.971

These figures are for children attending Akrotiri Primary School and include children of both Ministry of Defence service and civilian personnel.

Children of secondary school age living at RAF Akrotiri attend school in Episkopi. It would not be possible in the time available to extract the data required to determine the costs incurred for secondary school pupils whose parents are based at RAF Akrotiri.
