Statistics on school composition are published as The Composition of Schools in England and include data from England.

The latest statistics report on the period 2006/2007 but also includes time series data from 1997. This is a one off publication and does not update any existing analysis, every year our unit produces a bulletin on a different topic.

The key points from the latest release are:

This bulletin looks at how pupils are distributed between schools. The bulletin covers analyses on several different questions including:

  • How pupils are segmented by school type.
  • The migration of pupils between Local Authorities in the transition between primary and secondary education.
  • How representative schools are of their Local Authority and local areas.
  • The distance pupils travel to get to school.
