You do not compare the former's record on official 'permanent exclusions' and 'persuaded departures' with the latter's, where I know of many similar departures of pupils. You should be asking: is there a significant difference in exclusions from QEBS since it opted out?
I voted against the opt-out, due to my worries about teacher insularity, funding for large projects and the general unfairness of unequal funding. I sent my son to QEBS because of the quality of its standards: similar to those we have found in my daughter's and my wife's schools.
