Education and skills




  • The Department for Education publishes achievement and attainment data (key stage results, GCSE, A level and equivalent) for all primary and secondary schools including state and private schools. You can access the latest data for a specific school, for the county, or by town and postcode, using their performance tables.

  • The Higher Education Statistics Agency publishes national information and statistics on students in higher education, including those attending the county’s two universities. 

  • The Annual Population Survey provides information on NVQ levels for the working age population, and this data is available from NOMIS.
