What is Schools Like Yours?
Schools Like Yours is a 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.
