To ask the Secretary of State for Education, how many young people left school without a Grade C in GCSE English and maths in each region in each of the last five academic years.
9 March 2016
The number of pupils at the end of key stage 4 without at least a grade C in GCSE English and maths in 2014/2015 can be deduced from Table LA1 of the local authority tables published in the “Revised GCSE and equivalent results in England 2014 to 2015” statistical first release. This table shows the percentage of pupils who achieved an A*-C in English and mathematics GCSEs including equivalents, including the total number of pupils at the end of key stage 4 in each local authority and region – from which the number and percentage of pupils not achieving a grade C in English and mathematics can be determined. Equivalent information for the previous four academic years is published in Table 15 in 2013/14 and Table 16 of the releases for earlier years.
