Academic Performance

The School takes great pride in the academic success of its students. For the past four years the School has been ranked in the top 10% nationally for student progress. In 2017, the DfE Progress 8 measure placed us in the top 100 state schools nationally – the second time in the last three years.

The hard work and commitment of our Post 16 students, supported by dedicated and professional staff, has ensured that students have gained places at some of the most prestigious Universities.

Behind the figures, every success is founded on hard work and the cooperation between parents, students and teachers.

What does Progress 8 measure?

Progress 8 calculates how much progress students make between their results in Year 6 (when students are aged 10 or 11) and their results in Year 11 (when students are 15 or 16).

Progress 8 compares students’ Year 11 exam results with those of other students with similar Year 6 results.

Students’ progress 8 scores are only worked out so that the school’s overall progress 8 score can be worked out.

A school’s progress 8 score is an average of all students’ individual scores. It shows whether, as a group, students in the school made above or below average progress compared to similar students in other schools.

Which subjects are included?

Progress 8 is designed to offer a broad and balanced curriculum, with a focus on academic subjects. Students will have their achievement measured across eight subjects. These will include:

  • Mathematics and English
  • Three English Baccalaureate (EBacc) qualifications (which include Sciences, History, Geography and Languages)
  • Three other approved qualifications (from the ‘open group’)

The image at the bottom of this page shows how these different groups of subjects fit together for Progress 8.

If a student sits more than eight subjects, the highest results for the qualifications in each group will be used.

If a student has not taken eight qualifications, they will get a lower Progress 8 score.

Schools get a score based on how well students have performed in up to 8 qualifications, which include English, Mathematics, 3 English Baccalaureate qualifications including the Sciences, Computer Science, History, Geography and Languages, and 3 other additional approved qualifications. Mathematics and English are also double weighted compared to other subjects.

To calculate the Attainment 8 score, each student's qualifying grades are converted to points and added up, with Mathematics and English double-weighted. From 2017, reformed GCSEs will be graded on a 1-9 scale.

Until 2017, achieving GCSE grades A*- C in English and Mathematics was widely recognised as the minimum required to commence Post-16 study such as A Levels or vocational qualifications. Schools have also been ranked in performance tables by this ‘Basics’ measure.

From 2017, Grade 4 in the reformed GCSE examinations has been regarded as a 'standard pass' and represents the minimum entry requirement for further education.

Grades 5 and above are regarded as 'strong passes'.

In 2017, schools are reporting the proportion of students gaining grade 4+ in English and Mathematics, and the proportion gaining Grade 5+ in those subjects. In the future, it is anticipated that Grade 5 will become the expected standard.

The English Baccalaureate [EBacc] is a school performance measure used by the Department for Education. It measures the proportion of students in Year 11 who gain GCSE grades 5 -9 in the following subjects:

English
Mathematics
Two Sciences [Two from GCSE Computer Science, Biology, Chemistry or Physics, or GCSE Science and Additional Science]
A language [modern languages, ancient languages such as Latin or community languages]
History or Geography

This measures the number of students who either stayed in education or went into employment after Year 11. Currently, the DfE has only published data for students who finished Year 11 in 2015. The 2016 and 2017 data has been made available by the LBH.

These figures are based on students who entered at least one A Level or AS Level. A Levels are available in a wide range of subjects, including English, Mathematics, the Sciences, Languages and Humanities. The primary purpose of A Levels is to prepare students for degree-level study at university. Each grade has a point value to all qualifications based on the following equivalence:

A* = 60    A = 50    B = 40    C = 30    D = 20    E = 10

These scores show how much progress students at our School made in GCSE English and Mathematics retakes, between the end of Key Stage 4 and the end of the 16 to 18 phase of education. A positive score means that, on average, students got higher grades at 16 to 18 than at Key Stage 4. A negative score means that, on average, students got lower grades than at Key Stage 4. Students are included in these measures if they did not achieve a grade C or higher in their GCSE or equivalent by the end of Key Stage 4 in that subject.

As the participation age has been increased to 18, it is increasingly important that all young people are given suitable education and training opportunities that they see through to completion. The retention measure shows the percentage of students who get to the end of the post-16 programme of study that they enrolled on.
