||A statistical analysis using multilevel modelling of the effectivenes of specialist school relative to non-specialist schools. It uses the first year of available pupil level data (2001). The main findings are that on average students at specialist schools obtained 1.4 grades more at GCSE, controlling for prior attainment, other pupil characteristics and school context variables. This is less than the claims of the Specialist Schools Trust. Schools which had been specialist for 5 years or more were more effective than those which had been specialist for a shorter time. Technology schools were the most effective while language and arts colleges were no more effective than non-specialist schools.
