Footnotes

  1. 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. 
  2. z = When an observation is not applicable
  3. English as an additional language (EAL) unclassified includes pupils whom first language was not obtained, refused or could not be determined.
  4. English includes pupils whose first language is English and pupils whose first language is not known but believed to be English.
  5. Other than English includes pupils whose first language is other than English and pupils whose first language is not known but believed to be other than English.
  6. Free school meals (FSM) does not relate to pupils who actually received free school meals but those who are eligible to receive free school meals. Pupils not eligible for free school meals or unclassified pupils are described as 'FSM all other’.
  7. Sub totals may not sum to the grand total due to a small number of pupils with missing information e.g. for  SEN, EAL, prior attainment level, religious denomination and admission type.
  8. 'Any SEN' indicates whether a pupil has learning difficulties or disabilities that make it harder for them to learn than most children of the same age. This includes 'SEN with a statement 'EHC plan' or 'SEN support'.
  9. Unclassified ethnicity includes pupils whom ethnicity was not obtained, refused or could not be determined.
  10. Discounting has been applied where pupils have taken the same subject more than once. In 2021/22, with the return of the exam series, first entry rules were reintroduced for discounting. Further information can be found in the secondary accountability guidance. For more on the discounting methodology read the Discounting and Early Entry Guidance.
  11. Combined Science GCSE is a Double Award and is included in this table for the purpose of comparison with other Science subjects.
