Series abstract

The National Pupil Database (NPD) holds a wide range of information about students who attend schools and colleges in England. The NPD combines the examination results of pupils with information on pupil and school characteristics and is an amalgamation of a number of different datasets, including Key Stage attainment data and Schools Census data (formerly known as PLASC), which are linked using a unique identifier for each pupil. The dataset is made available for research purposes by the Department for Education.
