Super hot heatmaps!

With all this data, it seemed a shame not to have some interesting visualisations,
so we've built some heatmaps showing variations in school data across England.

Local Authorities

We know the Local Authority of every state school, this enables us to analyse the data we hold for each school and aggregate it at a Local Authority level.

Ofsted ratings

Of particular interest are our heatmaps showing average Ofsted inspection rating by Local Authority for both primary and secondary schools. As can be seen there are definite differences around the country, in particular for secondary schools.

Other School Measures

As well as Ofsted ratings, we've also provided the following Local Authority heatmaps:

  • Percentage of pupils meetings Key Stage 2 expected level.
  • Percentage of pupils meetings Key Stage 2 higher level.
  • Average GCSE (Key Stage 4) Attainment 8 score.
  • Average A-Level and equivalent (Key Stage 5) points (best 3 subjects).
  • Percentage of parents who would recommend their child's school.
  • Percentage of pupils eligible for free school meals.
  • Percentage of pupils who are persistently absent.
