Location, location, location: educational achievement by postcode

The ‘Location, location, location – the widening education gap in Britain and how where you live determines your chances’ report from UCU (University and College Union) analyses educational achievement by Westminster parliamentary constituency in England, Scotland and Wales and ranks each according to the percentage of people with at least some qualifications and the percentage of people with a degree or above.

Where you live will determine your chances of educational success and people living in traditionally underachieving areas are proportionately less likely to have a degree now than they were at the last election.

The 21 cities individually analysed in the report are: London, Birmingham, Bradford, Brighton, Bristol, Cardiff, Coventry, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Hull, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle, Nottingham, Plymouth, Sheffield, Southampton, Stoke and Wolverhampton.
