What difference have we really made? In case you've forgotten in the simplest possible terms we have improved outcomes for young people in our secondary schools:
- from 39.5% to 77.5% getting 5 good GCSEs;
- from 27.5% to 51.5% getting 5 good GCSes including English and maths;
- from 86.5% to 94.5% getting 5 GCSEs;
- from 6.6% to 1.3% getting nothing.
In simple numbers that means an extra 3300 young people getting 5 good GCSEs every year and a reduction from 550 to 100 young people getting nothing at the end of their statutory education.
