Please note:

In 2017 the new grades for English and Maths specifications were introduced.  This makes comparision with 2016 with 2015 & 2016 more difficult.

2016 was the first year that the best score from English Language and English Literature would count with the Maths grade. In 2015 it was just the English Language grade.

2017 was the first time that Grade 5 (strong pass) was used as the school national benchmark

This is based on 4-9 in English & Maths and therefore can be compared to 2015 & 2016. Grade 4-9 is equivalent to the A*-C measure.
