However, the information provides a useful starting point for parents and students looking for a secondary school.
The data covers several key indicators, including the proportion of students achieving a grade 5 or better in English and maths.
It also includes the proportion of students who entered GCSEs in the five main pillars: English, maths, science, a language, history or maths. The average Ebacc point score for these students.
