Government schools average class size - Secondary English classes, February Census, Victoria

A dataset of Government schools average Secondary School English Class Size, showing average for Year 12 and overall secondary classes, from census year 2001 to 2023.

The size of secondary English classes is collected from government schools as part of the February School Census conducted on the last school day of February each year. The data is based on the number of English classes in secondary year levels. English class size is an indication of the size of classes in secondary schools, as almost all students study English. This includes each compulsory and elective English class for secondary students held during the week of the census. Secondary students not studying English are NOT counted in the class size return. Also included are classes (such as Remedial English or ESL / English as a Second Language) that a student attends instead of compulsory English. Excluded are classes such as English Literature, Remedial English or ESL that a student attends as well as “compulsory” English. Please note that extra teaching support is NOT included when calculating the average class size. Average class size is NOT the same as the student/teacher ratio.
