The Rampton and Swann Reports were produced by the Committee of Enquiry into the Education of Children from Ethnic Minority Groups set up by the Government in 1979 in response to the report of the Select Committee on Race Relations and Immigration on the West Indian Community. The Select Committee had highlighted concerns about the academic performance of West Indian children. This dissertation examines the social and historical context into which the reports were commissioned and completed, their consequent findings and the impact that they have had on both secondary education and race relations since .The interim report of 1981, known as the Rampton Report focussed specifically on West Indian children in schools whilst the full report produced in 1985, officially called Education for All and referred to as the Swann Report, looked at the education for all ethnic minority groups and examined the wider implication of multiculturalism in the education system. The reports produced evidence pointing to the fact that racism was having an effect on the experiences of ethnic minority children in British schools and called for a move towards a more multi-cultural education system.
