Federal education minister Simon Birmingham announced yesterday that the federal government will increase schools funding in a new deal prime minister Malcolm Turnbull dubbed “Gonski 2.0”

Commonwealth funding will increase by 75% over the next decade and businessman David Gonski, who wrote the original education funding plan for Labor, will conduct a new review on how the money should be spend for the best outcomes.

Birmingham said under the new arrangements, 24 schools with the highest proportion of overfunding will “experience negative growth” on Commonwealth funding, ie. take a cut. But he wouldn’t disclose which ones.

Today, Fairfax Media revealed the schools on the chopping block based on the latest Department of Education data.

The Coalition government policy aims to provide 80% of the appropriate funding level – known as the Schooling Resource Standard (SRS) – for public and private schools by the end of the decade. The schools listed below are currently funded at 107% and above.

Independent, co-educational Canberra Grammar School in the ACT currently receives funding at 107% of SRS and is at the bottom of the scale. Loreto Kirribilli in Sydney’s North is a private school for girls, and tops the list at funding of 196% of SRS.
