School league tables widen to eight subjects

Secondary school league tables in England are to be re-designed to discourage an over-emphasis on pupils achieving C grades at GCSE, says Schools Minister David Laws.

From 2016, schools will be measured on overall results in eight GCSE subjects.

There will be four key league table measures, showing pupils’ progress as well as final grades.

Education Select Committee chairman Graham Stuart has hailed the change as an “educational breakthrough”.

Mr Stuart said it would remove the “damaging obsession” with the C grade boundary.
