Interesting way of looking at the uneven distribution:

high achieving band north / south and west of London then decreasing (apart from a few notable exceptions) until we reach the Autonomous Kingdom of North Yorkshire

Wow, we did do well didn't we!! But when you have the schools North Yorkshire have (and I'm thinking of Harrogate in particular) it's not surprising those results are displayed :D

I'm impressed that so many got english GCSE here ... not like I can understand the local lingo!!

Having said that I'm talking about Ilkley and that is Bradford LEA and in West Yorkshire :lol: :lol:

Am grumpy that Cheshire East was highlighted in my area for its poxy 62% ( :lol: ) instead of the Most Excellent Borough of Trafford at 68%. Maybe I shall lead a secession from the Cheshire Set and join the Autonomous Kingdom of NY. It will help to bring your percentage up ;)

<<runs away quickly>>

Could one call the data into question when the figures labelled on the map don't quite correspond to those quoted on the table? eg. Kent, Devon. They appear to be applying the same criteria, or am I missing something?...it's OK AKNY, you're at 62% on both :D

Actually that band of better results stretches across from Yorkshire westward to hit the Irish Sea.

As well as the totally expected results (Sutton, Bucks etc.) some surprises. Lancashire above Sussex for example..and what is it with the Isle of Wight?!
