Tables left out A-level numbers
This figure is an important part of the performance picture and has always been provided in previous tables. For example in my own area for 1996 the average A-level result related to 12 students in a local school, 99 students in another local school and 294 at the local Oaklands College. This information should be included in the tables for 1998. If space is a problem then let us omit the figure for "fewer than two A-levels" and include only those taking "more than two A-levels" - but let us not omit both.
I write to you because of course it is The TES to which teachers look for the annual performance statistics in their most comprehensive form.
