The information published below shows:

It shows these numbers by reference to:

  • the gender of the individuals to which they relate
  • their ethnicity
  • their socioeconomic background.


Please note: The small, specialist nature of NSCD means that much of the data available for this report been suppressed (ie not included).

Numbers have been rounded to the nearest multiple of 10 and where figures are 20 or less, the field is populated with an “N”.

In instances where publishing data might identify an individual student, this has been suppressed for data protection reasons, and fields populated with “DP” instead.
