To ask the Secretary of State for Education with reference to Table 3 in his Department's publication, GCSE and equivalent attainment by pupil characteristics in England: 2011 to 2012, if he will further disaggregate those results by ethnicity from the broad categories of ethnicity listed at (a) local authority and (b) Government Office Region level.

A table containing disaggregated ethnicity breakdowns by (a) local authority and (b) region for the Department's headline indicator ‘pupils achieving 5+ A*-C grades inc English & mathematics GCSEs’, for the academic year 2011/12, has been placed in the House Library.

Information for the other achievement indicators presented in Table 3 in the Department's publication, GCSE and equivalent attainment by pupil characteristics in England: 2011 to 2012, could be provided only at disproportionate cost. Likewise a gender breakdown and data for past years could be provided only at disproportionate cost.
