There have been no entries into Citizenship studies at GCSE level[1] in York[2] by pupils at the end of key stage 4[3] in the last five years[4]. Information on the number of entries in Citizenship Studies subjects at GCSE level in England in each of the last five years is provided in the table attached.

[1] Includes GCSEs and equivalents.

[2] Local authority figures cover achievements in state-funded schools only. They do not include pupils recently arrived from overseas.

[3] Pupils are identified as being at the end of key stage 4 if they were on roll at the school and in year 11 at the time of the spring school census. Age is calculated as at 31 August for that year, and the majority of pupils at the end of key stage 4 are age 15 at the start of the academic year. Some pupils may complete this key stage in an earlier or later year group.

[4] Includes entries and achievements by these pupils in previous academic years.
