This statistical first release (SFR) provides updated information on the overall achievements of young people in GCSE examinations and other regulated qualifications in the academic year 2011 to 2012.

The information is taken from data collated for the 2012 secondary school performance tables, which has been checked by schools. The results shown in this SFR are based on pupils reaching the end of key stage 4 (KS4), typically those starting the academic year aged 15. Figures from the 2010 to 2011 year shown in this SFR have been updated from revised to final.

This SFR also contains statistics on the attainment of pupils in alternative provision (tables P1 to P5).

The 2012 Secondary School Performance tables are also published today.

Information on Key Stage 4 attainment by pupil characteristics is also being published today in SFR 04/2013.

Headlines

The revised results published in this Statistical First Release (SFR) are based on data checked by schools. This shows that the percentage of pupils in all schools achieving five or more GCSEs at grade A* to C or equivalent, including English and mathematics GCSEs, has increased slightly from 2010/11. However, the provisional results published in SFR 25/2012 reported a small decrease in this measure, driven by a significant drop in the percentage of pupils in independent schools achieving this standard. A small fall in the figure for independent schools is still evident in the revised results.

For the first time since progress measures were introduced, the percentage of pupils making expected progress in mathematics between Key Stage 2 and GCSE (Key Stage 4) is greater than the percentage making expected progress in English. The percentage making progress in mathematics has increased by nearly four percentage points from last year, while the English measure has fallen by a similar amount.

Pupils in selective schools continue to outperform pupils in other schools in all main Key Stage 4 (KS4) indicators.
