Key Stage 3 Benchmarking Data - Release of revised version

Following discussions and feedback a revised and final version of the KS3 middle school benchmarking data is now available to download. The new version includes:


- More schools - 56 schools and over 6,000 pupils

- National KS3 data for all schools as a further benchmark

- Average points scores for core subjects in middle deemed secondary schools

Revised guidance from Ofsted on the inspection of middle schools is likely to make reference to the availability of this benchmarking data.

To download either a Summary Report in Word, or an interactive spreadsheet of the data, please visit the 'Middle school research' page of this website.
