My colleague Andy Humphreys, Research and Information Officer in our fantastic Performance Management and Information Team responded to my request about the number of young people getting good GCSEs now compared to 2001...

"Hi Chris, Your recent blog entry regarding KS4 improvements since 2001.... well, since you asked, I thought I'd work it out. In 2001, 39.6% of 8271 pupils in Leeds schools achieved 5+ A*-C, which is 3275 pupils. In 2008 we believe that more than 62% of pupils will have achieved 5+A*-C, which is at least 5355. Which means an extra 2080 pupils will have achieved the 5+A*-C standard at KS4 - great stuff !

OK Andy, so over the years from 2001 to 2008 how many young people have achieved good GCSEs compared to the 2001 baseline?
