Help text
This is the number of girls entering the English Baccalaureate (EBacc).

The English Baccalaureate (EBacc) was first introduced into the performance tables in 2009/10. It allows people to see how many pupils get a grade C or above in the core academic subjects at key stage 4. The EBacc is made up of English, maths, science, a language, and history or geography. Results for 2019/20 and 2020/21 includes grades awarded to students, when exams were cancelled, due to Covid-19 and are not comparable with earlier years. Instead, for 2020/21, pupils were only assessed on the content they had been taught for each course. Schools were given flexibility to decide how to assess their pupils’ performance.

Figures for all state-funded schools include local authority maintained mainstream schools, academies, free schools, city technology colleges, further education colleges with provision for 14 to 16 year-olds and state-funded special schools. They exclude independent schools, independent special schools, non-maintained special schools, hospital schools, pupil referral units and alternative provision. They do not include pupils recently arrived from overseas.
