  1. Figures are based on pupils at the end of key stage 4 and do not include those pupils recently arrived from overseas.

x = Figures not shown due to 1 or 2 pupils not achieving 5 or more A*-C GCSE grades (or equivalent). This suppression is to protect pupil confidentiality and consistent with the Department for Education’s statistical policy[1].
