Information about the number of students from each socio-economic group who achieved three or more A* to A grades is not held centrally.

The closest information the Department publishes are figures organised by disadvantage and the provision of Free School Meals, which can be used as a proxy. Figures for 2016/17 are published as part of the “A level and other 16 to 18 results: 2016 to 2017 (revised) statistical release[1] and in the underlying data of the ‘A level attainment by pupil characteristics’ transparency data[2] for earlier years.
