§ Mr. Willis
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what evaluation of the Key Stage 3 strategy has taken place that compares schools in the original pilot with a similar range of schools outside the pilot; and what the result was. 
§ Mr. Miliband
Final school-level Key Stage 3 data will become available later this year when school performance tables are published. We will then be undertaking an analysis comparing the performance of schools which participated in the Key Stage 3 pilots and other schools in similar circumstances. I will write to the hon. Member to inform him of the outcome of this analysis in the New Year.
