What age group are you looking at?
Government Statistics gateway publishes lots of different information- I am assuming you are looking at standard National Curriculum levels? Or are you trying to compare to the reat of the world?

Found this for international comparisons. A bit out of date though.

thank you ladies.Where would we be without MN?

I'm looking at a ballpark figure for GB and USA really as intro to argument that reading instruction in our schools is shite with partic. reference to kids with special needs.

Hmm- not sure how statistics help- of course our children are assessed to our 'own' standards- likewise US children are too.
I'm not sure what level of literacy is required to graduate from an american high school, and whether or not that compares to GCSE English or not....
