Information is not held in the requested format.

The Department for Education does publish information separately at local authority level on the number of pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and the breakdown by major ethnicities in the ‘GCSE and equivalent attainment by pupil characteristics:2014’.[1] Data for earlier years is also available from this publication.
