Exam Results

From August 2016, the DFE introduced new ‘success measures’ for schools. Schools are measured with regard to the progress that Year 11 students have made (from Year 6 (SATS) to Year 11) as well as the overall attainment of their students.

Progress 8’ Measure 

The “Progress 8” figure shows the progress made by students in a school, compared to students nationally based on eight key subjects. Our Progress 8 score has been above zero in both 2015 and 2016, showing that students at this school have made more progress than the national average.  The government release the official Progress 8 scores midway through the autumn term; early indications are that our 2017 cohort have once again made better progress than is typical nationally.
