Percentage of pupils in underperforming Primary and Secondary schools

We identify a number of “education deserts”, including South and North East Derbyshire, East Northamptonshire, Doncaster, Boston, Knowsley and Bolsover, where parents and students are being let down throughout the education system. In South Derbyshire, the worst performing area, pupils have a one in three chance of attending an underperforming primary school and a 100 per cent chance of attending an underperforming secondary school.
