Footnotes

  1. Includes students triggered for inclusion in performance tables who completed A levels during 16-18 study, after discounting of exams.
  2. Figures for the total number of students may not match the sum of females and males, as not all institutions recorded the gender for every student.
  3. Disadvantage status is as reported at the end of key stage 4. Analysis involving disadvantage status includes students at state-funded schools and colleges only.
  4. EHC plans and statements of SEN are legal documents which detail the needs of the individual student, and the assistance they are to receive.
