This paper examines the social exclusion faced by Gypsy and Traveller pupils in secondary schools in one inner London borough. It explores the notion of community in relation to the 'space' of the school. The paper argues that Gypsy and Traveller children continue to be 'outsiders' within the space of school. If schools are unable to recognise the position of Gypsy and Traveller children as outsiders, they will fail to include them fully into the school community.
