This Statistical First Release announces that some new sub-national tables on GCSE performance prepared by the DfES are being released by the Neighbourhood Statistics Service (NeSS). These tables provide details about the final 2003/2004 GCSE and equivalent results for pupils attending maintained schools in England and complement the 2004 Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3 National Curriculum Assessment results published on the NeSS website on 22 June. The tables show the total number of 15 year olds and the percentage of 15 year olds, including gender splits, obtaining passes and "good" passes (grade A*-C at GCSE and equivalent) and the average GCSE and equivalent point scores and capped point scores per 15 year old pupil. Included for the first time are KS2-GCSE and KS3-GCSE value added measures and coverage indicators. The information is based on the geographic locations of educational institution and pupil residence in England; and Regional, Local Authority District (LAD) and middle and lower layer Super Output Area (SOA) breakdowns are available.
This information will be available within the Education, Skills and Training domain on the Neighbourhood Statistics web site.
