Abstract

Evidence suggests considerable variation among British ethnic groups in their performance at different stages of their educational careers. Many members of those groups are concentrated in particular parts of certain cities, and as a consequence many attend ethnically segregated schools. Using pupil-level and school-level data from the Pupil Level Annual School Census in England, we explore the relationship between performance and various student and school characteristics in Bradford (which has a large Pakistani population) and Leicester (with a large Indian population). We find evidence of a correlation between school ethnic composition and performance in Bradford but not in Leicester.
