Year 11 - Ethnicity


Ethnic minority groups made up 4.9% of the cohort.

However ethnic data and analysis might be slightly skewed by the fact that 13.1% of the Year 11 cohort did not supply information on ethnicity.

In addition the non-response/left area proportion is more than twice as high for leavers from minority ethnic groups (2.8% for ethnic minority groups compared to 1.1% for white background groups).

Of those returning information on ethnicity from ethnic minority backgrounds:

  • The most popular choice of route across all minority ethnic groups was continuing in full time education at 90.9% (compared with 87.3% for those from white backgrounds)
  • The least popular route for all minority ethnic groups was continuing in part time education (less than 16 hours a week) with 0.1% of individuals entering this option
  • A higher percentage of those with white backgrounds went into the various labour market categories (8.2%) compared to those from minority ethnic backgrounds (3.7%)
  • A higher proportion of young people who were NEET came from white backgrounds (2.9% or 773 individuals) compared to individuals from an ethnic minority background (2.4% or 38 individuals)
