Isolated schools: Out on a limb

The Future Leaders Trust – This research paper explores the relationship between school performance and relative geographical isolation in England, defined as the straight-line distance to the next nearest secondary school.  The research particularly looks at how this relates to the GCSE attainment of students in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM students).  It establishes a correlation between poorer outcomes for FSM students and relative geographical isolation.
