These Tables give information on the achievement and attainment of pupils in secondary schools, and how they compare with other schools in their local authority (LA) area and in England as a whole. There are two England averages based on all schools and on the maintained sector only including CTC City Technology Colleges and Academies.

In addition to giving background information on each school, the Tables present:

  • Attainment in GCSEs (and equivalent qualifications) of pupils who were at the end of Key Stage 4 (KS4) in the 2010/11 school year
  • The percentage of pupils who have met the English Baccalaureate requirements
  • Percentage of pupils at the end of KS4 who have made at least expected progress in English and separately in maths
  • Percentage of pupils achieving A*-C grade GCSEs in both English and maths
  • Value Added (VA) scores including English and maths bonuses which measure the progress made by pupils from the end of Key Stage 2 (KS2) to the end of KS4 using their test and exam results.
  • A bar chart which shows how 5+ A*-C GCSE (and equivalent) including English and maths results for pupils at the end of KS4 in each school has changed each year since 2008
  • Overall, persistent and unauthorised absence rates at KS4
  • Information on schools’ income and expenditure for the financial year 2010-2011
  • Statistics relating to teachers and school workforce
  • Link to individual Ofsted reports

The information in these Tables only provides part of the picture of each school’s and its pupils’ achievements. Schools change from year to year and their future results may differ from those achieved by current pupils. The attainment and progress data in the Tables should be considered alongside other important sources of information such as Ofsted reports and school prospectuses. Ofsted school inspection reports can be obtained from www.ofsted.gov.uk or direct from the school on request.

All secondary schools in each LA area are listed in alphabetical order, including:

  • LA maintained schools
  • Academies
  • City Technology Colleges
  • Independent schools
  • Special schools (for pupils with special educational needs requiring special teaching and facilities)
