Ethnic minority groups made up 6% of the cohort.
However ethnic data and analysis might be slightly skewed by the fact that for 4% of the Year 11 cohort there was no information on ethnicity.
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 92.4% (compared with 88% 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 (9%) compared to those from minority ethnic backgrounds (4%).
- A higher proportion of young people who were NEET came from white backgrounds (1.6% or 456 individuals) compared to individuals from an ethnic minority (0.8% or 14 individuals).
