  • social class attainment gap at Key Stage 4 (as measured by percentage point difference in attainment between those eligible and not eligible for free school meals) is three times as wide as the gender gap
  • some minority ethnic groups attain significantly below the national average and their under-achievement is much greater than the gap between boys and girls
