Footnotes

  1. Figures for disadvantage only available from 2016/17 onwards due to changes in measurement.
  2. Figures for English and maths are based on those educated in the mainstream state-funded sector in year 11, therefore overall attainment rates differ to headline measures (see the 'About this publication' section) although trends are comparable.
  3. Condition of Funding changes for young people were introduced by the Education and Skills Funding Agency from 2014/15 onwards. This has resulted in most students having to study English and/or maths at level 2 as part of their programmes between the ages of 16 and 19 if they are yet to achieve qualifications at this level.
  4. Prior attainment is primarily determined by GCSE grade achieved in year 11. Grade levels are categorised as follows: Grade U includes those labelled as '0', 'X', and 'Q', Grade 1 includes those previously classified as G in the legacy system, Grade 2 includes those previously classified as E or F in the legacy system and Grade 3 includes those previously classified as D in the legacy system.
  5. Figures for pupil characteristics are based on those educated in the mainstream state-funded sector in year 11, therefore overall attainment rates differ to headline measures (see the 'About this publication' section) although trends are comparable.
  6. See accompanying methodology for definitions of characteristics.
