Academic Achievement in Girls’ Schools 2018-2019


KS4 and KS5 attainment data – 2018-19

The DfE 16-18 performance tables report achievements of students aged 16 to 18 who are at the end of advanced level study, (the end of Key Stage 5 or KS5). The analysis below uses the average point score per A level entry for students who were entered for at least one AS or A level qualification.

The Key Stage 4 (KS4) data reports the achievements of students using the Attainment 8 measure which allocates points according to grades achieved by pupils in their best 8 subjects at GCSE level (including Maths and English).

The data shows that:

  • On average, students in girls’ schools outperform students in co-ed schools, at both KS4 and KS5
  • Girls in girls’ schools perform higher than students in co-ed schools across all schools and also when looking at independent schools only
KS5 A Level data

  • Higher attainment can be seen when looking at all subjects as a whole, and also for Maths and English separately
