Proportions of Pupils Attending Four Secondary School Types

Proportions of Pupils Attending Four Secondary School Types

The table indicates the percentage of students who attended four different secondary schools in the years of 2000, 2005 and 2009.

As seen in the table, most of the children went to the schools that were voluntary-controlled in 2000, but it seems the popularity decreased by 2009 in which year the most crowded secondary education institutions were the community schools.

In 2000, the proportion of attendance at specialist schools was 20%, but it gradually decreased in 2009 by 2%. Even in grammar schools, the percentage of participation dropped at 12% in 2009 which was 24% in 2000.

Overall, a bit more than half of the percentage of school children went to schools that were voluntary-controlled in 2000. The percentage sharply declined up to 20% in 2009. Community schools, by contrast, were not so popular in 2000, only 12% of the students attended. But rising at 32% in 2005, the schools became the highest in student participation in 2009, with 58%.


This is model #3 on this website.I want to have some feedback on my language mistakes and other errors as well. If possible, let me know how much score this report deserves to have.

Any help would be appreciated.
