  • Release date: 1 May 2001
  • Period covered: 1999-2000
A report which includes information on the number of pupils, examination results, absenteeism and entitlement to free school meals.

Key points

  • A greater proportion of fifteen year olds in church schools achieved five or more GCSEs grade A*-C or vocational equivalents than in other schools.
  • A smaller proportion of 16-18 year olds in church schools entered for two or more A levels or achieving vocational equivalent achieved 2 or more A levels grade A-C or vocational equivalent.
  • The overall rate of absenteeism was lower in church schools than in other secondary schools.
  • Analysis of levels of examination performance in comparison with levels of free school meal entitlement shows that once the different levels of free school meal entitlement are taken into account, the differences in GCSE/GNVQ examination performance and absenteeism were not statistically significant.
