Footnotes

  1. Stevenage district boundary was changed in 2014. The local authority district code was changed from E07000101 to E07000243 to reflect this.

  3. Northumberland district boundary was changed in 2014. The local authority district code was changed from E06000048 to E06000057 to reflect this.
  4. Some zero percentages may represent small numbers due to rounding.
  5. z = When an observation is not applicable
  6. In 2020 and 2021, all GCSEs in England have been reformed and use the new 9 to 1 grading system (rather than A*-G). Year on year comparisons will be limited until these qualifications are consistently included from 2020 onwards. However, results for 2020 and 2021 are not comparable with earlier years due to the cancellation of exams (due to COVID-19) and the changes to the way GCSE grades were awarded.
  7. Welwyn Hatfield district boundary was changed in 2013. The local authority district code was changed from E07000104 to E07000241 to reflect this.
  8. Gateshead district boundary was changed in 2014. The local authority district code was changed from E08000020 to E08000037 to reflect this.
  9. : = When data is unavailable for other reasons
  10. The residency of 673 pupils living in England in 2020/21 is unknown due to missing or invalid postcode information. Pupils not resident in England and pupils with missing or invalid postcode information are excluded from the figures in presented.
  11. c = a cell that has been suppressed due to low number of pupils. Suppression was applied where deemed necessary for all data up to 2018/19. For 2019/20, DfE suppression policy changed. For 2020 and 2021 results where a geographical area contains only one school (for example Isles of Scilly) the data for that area has been suppressed. This is in line with the announcement that school level data would not be published using either summer 2020 or summer 2021 exam grades awarded.
  12. All state-funded schools include local authority maintained mainstream schools, academies, free schools, city technology colleges, further education colleges with provision for 14 to 16 year-olds and state-funded special schools. They exclude independent schools, independent special schools, non-maintained special schools, hospital schools, pupil referral units and alternative provision. Alternative provision includes academy and free school alternative provision.
