New Government figures - fall in Arts GCSEs

The percentage of pupils entering at least one arts subject has fallen to by 1.7 percentage points to just 47.9% of pupils in state-funded schools in 2016.

The new figures were published today by the Department for Education.

This is on top of an overall decline of 8% in the uptake of arts subjects at GCSE and shows that the DfE’s English Baccalaureate (EBacc) proposals are continuing to have a negative impact on the uptake of creative, artistic and technical subjects in schools.
