What the data measures

The data measures the percentage of pupils at state-funded mainstream schools who got a grade 5 or above in GCSE English and maths.

The Department for Education recognises a grade 5 and above in English and maths as a ‘strong pass’. Grade 4 is considered a ‘standard pass’, similar to the old grade C.

Percentages are rounded to 1 decimal place.

The ethnic groups used in the data

Data is shown for the 16 ethnic groups used in the 2001 Census, with 2 exceptions:

  • Traveller of Irish Heritage and White Gypsy and Roma pupils have been separated into 2 categories
  • pupils in the Chinese ethnic group are in a separate category from Asian pupils
