Performance Information

School performance data is statistical information showing how well pupils in England have done in public examinations taken at key points in their educational journey.

At secondary school level, data is published detailing pupils' performance in GCSEs (and equivalent exams) at age 16.

Performance data can be difficult to interpret and as such if you require any further explanation or information please contact Mrs L Rainey, Assistant Headteacher, Raising Standards

Performance and Results

We are proud of our inclusive ethos and that students, whatever their background are achieving so much better than the National Average. 

Understanding how results are measured

Progress 8

Progress 8 aims to capture the progress a pupil makes from the end of primary school to the end of secondary school. It is a type of value added measure, which means that pupils’ results are compared to the actual achievements of other pupils with the same prior attainment. It is now considered the main measure in performance tables.

Attainment 8

Attainment 8 measures the achievement of a pupil across 8 qualifications including mathematics and English, 3 qualifications including sciences, computer science, history, geography and languages, and 3 other additional approved qualifications.

English Baccalaureate ( EBacc )

EBacc is another school performance measure. It allows people to see how many pupils get a grade C or Grade 5 and above in the core academic subjects at key stage 4 in any government-funded school.
