Ethnic minority groups made up 5.9% of the cohort.
However ethnic data and analysis might be slightly skewed by the fact that for 8.4% of the Year 11 cohort there was no information on ethnicity.
The non-response/left area proportion is higher for leavers from minority ethnic groups (2.5% for ethnic minority groups compared to 1.5% 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 92.2% (compared with 87.5% for those from white backgrounds)
- The least popular routes for all ethnicity groups were continuing in Part time education (16 hours or less a week) and WBTYP (employed status), with 0.3% (5 individuals) entering each of these options
- A higher percentage of those with white backgrounds went into the various labour market categories (8.7%) compared to those from minority ethnic backgrounds (3.7%)
- A higher proportion of young people who were NEET came from white backgrounds (2% or 551 individuals) compared to individuals from an ethnic minority (1.3% or 25 individuals).
