The number of further education sector colleges that had at least one student entering A level music, or music technology, in 2016/17 was 103. [1],[2],[3]

[1] Includes: sixth form colleges, general further education colleges, agriculture and horticulture colleges & art, design and performing art colleges.

[2] Only includes colleges with A level students at the end of their 16-18 study in the 2016/17 academic year. Where qualifications taken by a student are in the same subject area and similar in content, ‘discounting’ rules have been applied to avoid double counting qualifications.

[3] The Department publishes this information at the following link: https://www.compare-school-performance.service.gov.uk/download-data. Select the academic year, then ‘All of England’, then ’16 to 18 qualification and subject data’ and then download the Excel file.
