The Education Policy Institute (EPI), in partnership with the Fair Education Alliance (FEA), published Annual Report on the state of education in England. It examines the progress made in closing the gap in educational attainment between disadvantaged pupils and their peers, known as ‘the disadvantage gap’. The measure is a leading indicator of social mobility.

The research, based on the latest Department for Education data, also considers how the gap has changed since 2011 and how it varies across the country. It also looks at how pupils from different backgrounds perform, as well as the routes taken by students after taking their GCSEs.

An interactive version of the geographical breakdowns, with downloadable data tables is available here.
