Footnotes

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. EHC plans and statements of SEN are legal documents which detail the needs of the individual student, and the assistance they are to receive.
  4. Exam entries are for the current academic year. Includes pending awards. Covers students aged 16, 17 or 18 at the start of the academic year. 
  5. A change to the trigger rules was introduced in 2020/21  such that students were no longer automatically reported after two years in 16-18 study. The introduction caused a fall in cohort size, particular within the vocational and technical cohorts.
