What is Schools Like Yours?

Schools Like Yours is a new tool from FFT Education Datalab that allows you to compare your performance to that of similar schools – where you decide how similar is defined.

Its aim is to support the use of data analysis for school improvement. It is currently available for mainstream Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 4 schools and special schools, and contains data on KS2 and KS4 performance, absence, finance, workforce, Ofsted ratings and pupil and school characteristics.

If the tool proves popular, we plan to keep adding to it. To this end, we welcome feedback via Twitter or email: @FFTEduDatalab or educationdatalab@fft.org.uk.
