To protect privacy, numbers are suppressed in categories with less than 10 students.


  • Starting 2018-2019, enrolment numbers have been rounded to the nearest five.
  • Where sum/totals are required, actual totals are calculated and then rounded to the nearest 5. As such, rounded numbers may not add up to the reported rounded totals.
