Key to success (National Pupil Database)

Key to Success allows schools to:

  • Download historic results for pupils by uploading unique pupil number (UPN) - particularly useful for pupils joining schools from any other school in England
  • Give access to key stage 2 and 3 results in a common transfer file (CTF) or excel format
  • It provides secondary schools with a facility to download the key stage 2 results for their new year 7 intake in July, before they arrive at the school
  • Download the Unique Learner Numbers (ULNs) for pupils doing the new diplomas


As a school you will need to use your S2S (School to School) username and password to log on to the Key to success website. If you have forgotten or lost this please contact:

School key to success administrators are encouraged to keep a record of staff with access to key to success data and ensure that each user fully understands how to use the data responsibly.
