Guidance on KS4 destination measures data in the school and college performance tables for 2018.

This is for pupils who finished their phase of study in the 2015 to 2016 academic year. It includes:

  • changes to the destination measures
  • sources of the data
  • how we calculate the measures
  • the categories of destinations

‘Destination’ means what pupils went on to do after they finished their studies in KS4, for example, staying in education or getting employed.

The destination measures provide clear and comparable information on the success of schools and colleges in helping their pupils take qualifications that offer them the best opportunity to progress.
