Secondary education data: FOI release

Information request and response under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002

Information requested

The raw data on a government website that will provide me with the current data for all secondary schools showing the percentage of pupils obtaining 5 or more highers and other data so that I can analyse alongside other measures like local simd2020 data.


I enclose a copy of all of the information you requested in an Excel workbook. Please note that the data provided is for SCQF L6, and will contain some other qualifications as well as highers.
You can find this information and a range of other data on schools in Scotland on our School Information Dashboards, available here:

Under normal circumstances this data would also be available to download from the open data platform:
