The huge surge in college progression rates nationally has seen many schools in different parts of the country achieve 100pc progression rates.

A decade ago, it was only fee-charging schools and a handful of others who hit this figure, but this year, 50 schools in the Free Education sector are in this category.

Others are close behind, at 80pc-90pc and above and, in another year, those schools, or others, may very well be at the 100pc mark.

The main message from the tables is the sheer volume of students now going to college, from all types of schools, including those who have a track record in being more inclusive than others.
